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 a fun and positive experience.
I've been volunteering for the Roseville Library for a year now. My experience has been positive. The facility is professionally managed and operated, and the volunteers and staff members I have interacted with have all been a great help. I went through orientation and training under Christopher Webber's department, also. There can be a considerable delay between the date of orientation, and the starting date for performing volunteer work; which is inconvenient, but mandatory for safety purposes. In my case, the completion of Live Scan paperwork through the police department took several weeks to process and receive back.
I was very interested in the Time Travelers special project. I am well qualified, retired and excited about helping. I interviewed with Chris Webber months ago, went for LiveScan...and have had no response since. That was weeks ago, despite emails and phone messages I left. I would have appreciated the courtesy of a response.
