The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteers are needed to verify the order and straighten books/items on the shelves. Document where you left off for staff/volunteers to continue. This is an ongoing volunteer opportunity that can be accomplished by individuals or sponsored groups from the community. The time commitment is at your discretion with flexible hours. Our existing volunteers work from one to three hours a week to accomplish this library task. Knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System is a plus; however, training is provided.
A volunteer application and background check authorization needs to be completed. An orientation and tour is provided to all new volunteers.
