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.
The Public Library is dedicated to free and equal access to information, knowledge, independent lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and the joys of reading for our diverse community.
Public libraries in California seek to engage the talents, skills and commitment of volunteers to serve the communities' information and literacy needs. Libraries offer a variety of skilled volunteer opportunities to make a meaningful contribution to library programs, operations, fundraising events and other community engagement functions. Skilled volunteers have opportunities to lead projects, work with teams of staff and volunteers, learn new skills, and have fun.
I do not know much of the duties of volunteering for this organization. What I do know is that the library is very important for the community for all ages. I believe that by volunteering for this organization will give everyone in our area the privilege to take advantages that the library has to offer. Due to lack of funding for employees, volunteering is very important for the hours of operations. With volunteering, it enables the library to become more available in hours to help those who needs these resources. I would recommend volunteering for this organization to others, because of the education and release from ones hard life through books. I personally would love to volunteer for this organization to help with the success of expanding our citizens minds and help with the children that the library offers.
