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.
Great place to contribute your talent helping others. The City of Orange Library have a great helpful and friendly staff. Parents in the community rely on the library to provide free tutoring service for kids - lots of opportunities.
Volunteer work at the Orange Public Library is a very gratifying experience for several reasons. First, as a volunteer, I am endorsing, supporting and helping to facilitate cultural literacy among the American public.
Secondly, it is a great way to give back to the public library system in general, an institution which has, for over a hundred years, offered the public a world of free learning.
Thirdly, it is simply a fun, easy way to serve my fellow man, which is the primary goal of all volunteerism.
Lastly, as a Welcome Desk volunteer at OPL, I'm given the opportunity to hone and develop my interpersonal and social skills.
In a nutshell, volunteerism with OPL is a Win Win situation.
