Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Looking for something fun and rewarding to do this winter? Volunteer at the library! The Cottonwood Public Library currently has close to 80 volunteers on its roster and we couldn't do what we do without them.
What does a volunteer do at the library? You might work the Circulation desk, checking in and shelving books, helping patrons find what they need and building relationships with wonderful members of the community. The Audio/Visual room is also an option, where you can help shelve DVDs, audiobooks, and music CDs. If you like children you might want to look into the Youth Services department where there are always many fun children’s activities happening. Teens ages 11-18 are also welcome to volunteer, and this is a great resume building opportunity.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer come in to the library and pick up an application. For more information contact Kyle Smith at 928-340-2782. The library is located at 100 S 6 th St in Cottonwood.
