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.
Volunteering as a Literacy Tutor at the beautiful Livermore Public Library was an absolutely wonderful experience. During training, I made a lot of friends, and felt ready to work with an adult learner. During my tutoring period, I really felt like I was making a difference in my adult learner's life.
Carey, the Literary Coordinator, is a bright ray of sunshine, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her.
I would recommend this opportunity to absolutely everyone. It's incredibly rewarding.
