Colonial Heights Library was such a wonderful place to volunteer at! I volunteered there for a few months and looked forward to coming each day. The staff was so friendly, cheerful and knowledgable and willing to help any patron or volunteer with a question. I learned a variety of skills and it was a great opportunity to add to my resume.
This is a very fun and relaxing way to volunteer. I am a technical assistant at Colonial Heights library and I love it! It brings out great opportunities. You will be giving a lot of customer service, getting work experience, and much more.
