There are two ways in which you can make a BIG difference at your library. One is through one of our On-Going Volunteer Opportunities. These jobs would work for you if you want to schedule a set time to volunteer each week, or every other week for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Here are our On-Going jobs:
Adopt Some Shelves!
We are so fortunate in that your Library is used A LOT! Things can get a little messy. We will assign to you your own special section or collection of books or other materials to straighten and order. Each time you come to volunteer you would spend 30 minutes caring for your shelves.
We will provide you with cleaning supplies and you will make sure our little ones are playing with cleaner toys.
The second way to volunteer in the Youth Services Department is to be On Call. We will contact you when a specific very important need arises and you can let us know if you are available.
Here are our On Call jobs:
We often have paper that needs to be cut, flyers to be folded, rocks painted, string measured, who knows!
Program Set Up
When we have a big event at the Library we often need help setting up crafts, chairs, tables, books and more.
Sometimes our programs are wonderfully busy! We need extra hands to help children and caregivers with crafts or snacks.
Dress Up Time
This job requires you to wear a character costume for a library event. Because of the size of the costumes, you should be at least 5 feet tall.
Pittsburgh Cares and you can search needs in our area. If you would like help using this database or would like more information about local volunteer needs we can help you with that, too. Just stop in and ask or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject Line: Looking for Local Volunteer Opportunities. We are happy to help you connect your gifts, talents and giving hearts to those in need. THANK YOU for wanting to give of yourself to make this world a better place.
