About

GIVE BACK FILL THE GAP. ReServe redefines a career arc for persons age 55+ to include skill based volunteering 10-20 hours a week with a stipend in the nonprofit sector. ReServe matches experienced professionals seeking to give back to their communities with local nonprofits in DC, MD, and VA to help them carry out their missions and to have a social impact.

ReServe is currently seeking Librarians to support a number of nonprofits in the Metropolitan DC area. Librarians manage information and resources and help people locate and utilize information. Librarians keep current on resources and literature, and select publications for the library's collection. They require a knowledgeable command of numerous information sources to select appropriate material for a library. A librarian categorizes, prepares, and catalogs these materials. Librarians also recommend material, and help individuals find the information that they need. They analyze and organize collections by subject. They educate individuals on how to use the library systems to find the information they need. Librarians may also conduct special programs or classes. User services librarians help individuals find and use library materials and resources. Technical services librarians work behind the scenes, obtaining and classifying resources for the library. Some might work with or develop computer information storage and retrieval systems.
