Spark Central 1

Station & library volunteers commit to working for 2 to 3 hours a week in Spark Central's Creative Station - or they can fill in as a substitute for someone who can't make their regular shift. Their role focuses on making Spark Central a welcoming space accessible to everyone!

These volunteers welcome patrons, answer our Help Desk telephone, describe what Spark Central is to adults, offer free membership to new guests, and learn our library software so that they can check in and out books, technology, and creative kits. Station volunteers may assist staff in engaging youth and families in engaging creative activities; library volunteers may assist with maintaining technology or cataloguing new library items. Station & library volunteers may also assist in inventory, data entry, and cleaning.

About Spark Central

Location:

1214 W Summit Parkway, SPOKANE, WA 99201, US

Mission Statement

Igniting the creativity, innovation, and imagination necessary for people to forge the path to their best future.

Description

Welcome aboard!

Spark Central is a creative learning center where people of all ages can access our high-speed Internet (1,000 Mbps), technology, rich and imaginative programming, and curated book and media collection. Building on the West Central neighborhood's rail yard roots, Spark Central is at the junction between where people are, and where they want to go. We offer resources, connection, support, and learning to those who need it most on their journey to a better future.

We foster creativity for adults, teens, and kids by providing learning experiences that explore the unlikely intersections between subjects, such as poetry and science or coding and character creation. Such experiences stretch the imagination, are the root of innovation, and develop the ability to problem-solve and think critically-skills essential to success in the Information Age, where the jobs of tomorrow haven’t been created yet. From learning to code to learning to write a story, we offer community members a one-way ticket to discovering their passion, building new skills, and growing the confidence needed for wherever they want to go.

Thanks to many generous donors, we are able to offer access to our resources and many of our programs at no charge and keep adult workshops affordable. Kids programs are always available at no cost because we believe that all children, regardless of income, deserve the chance to be imaginative, to play, and to find their inner genius.
