Home Delivery Partner Volunteer


Description:

Home Delivery volunteers play a critical role by providing library materials to community members who are unable to get to a library due to reasons of age, disability, illness and/or the coronavirus public health crisis. Each volunteer is matched with one or more patrons in the program and picks up and delivers items from the library to them on a regular basis, approximately every 1 to 2 weeks. In some cases, the volunteer will help with the selection of library materials and assist with managing the patron’s library account.

Time Commitment:

Estimated time is 1 to 2 hours every one to two weeks; 3 to 5 hours per month. We ask for a minimum 4-month commitment, ideally at least a 6-month commitment.
