Need Volunteers?

Does your group need volunteers? Are you interested in volunteering in our community, but aren’t sure where to start?

We have a program for that!

Our Library’s Summer Reading Program this year is entitled “Build a Better World.” We believe the first step is giving back to our local communities. To help our patrons with this task, we are hosting a Volunteer Fair on July 1st from 11-2pm. We are looking for non-profit groups who would be interested in holding a table advertising your group with the goal of gaining new volunteers. We are also inviting local groups, such as the boy scouts, who seek volunteer work to attend. We know the work you do in our community is enhanced by the help of fantastic volunteers.

Our goal for this fair is to provide a space for your group to advertise needs or to simply advocate your cause to our library patrons. Please contact our Adult Services Coordinator as soon as possible if your group is interested in participating as our space is limited. You can e-mail her at kaity@viennapubliclibrary.org or call 304-295-7771, ext. 3.
