Special Volunteer Opportunities:
Teen Tech Helpers: We’re looking for friendly, patient, tech savvy volunteers for our new Saturday Tech Sessions for Seniors beginning in January. Volunteers will be helping seniors with basic technology questions like how to use basic functions on their cell phones, how to set up and use email, and how to download books onto e-readers or tablets. Volunteers will receive community service credit for participating. Dates to be announced. For more information call or email Miss Jen in the Young Adult Department (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Fall, Winter & Spring Volunteer Opportunities:
Volunteer opportunities for community service credit are available throughout the school year. We will have community service hours available every Saturday from 10am-12 noon helping out at our Craft Corner. We will only schedule two volunteers each week so please contact the Children’s Department if you would like to volunteer.
To schedule a volunteering session please call the Children’s Department at 516-221-1200
Book Reviews may be completed throughout the school year for community service credit as well. Read any book you choose and complete the form. These reviews may be posted on our website as peer recommendations and are each worth one hour of community service.
All review forms may be returned to Jennifer at the Young Adult desk in the library or emailed to email@example.com
