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.

Oceanside Public Library’s mission is to serve the informational, educational, cultural, and recreational needs of our diverse community by facilitating literacy, lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, information equity and civic involvement in a welcoming, customer-focused environment.
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 would absolutely recommend volunteering here because there is nothing like being able to see the response little kids have when they see a character. And to be helping out the public library is just great.
Having volunteered a bunch of times at various places, I recommend it.

I said maybe because I haven't any volunteer experience as of yet, I will reserve recommending until I do. However, I frequently check out books at the mission branch and would highly recommend this location.
