October jobs

A reminder:  If you asked for shelving, you have been placed on a waiting list and will be contacted if/when shelving/shelf reading begins again and given a schedule and a date for training.  Do not just show up.


General Help/Misc

Book Sale Volunteers (will help move donated items, rearrange items for sale as needed, and pack up when sale is over).  You can ask for as many shifts as you like, never more than one per day will be awarded and Saleena will aim for an equitable distribution of jobs among all volunteers who ask.  

YOU WILL BE CONTACTED WITH A CONFIRMATION OF WHICH DAYS YOU ARE VOLUNTEERING. PLEASE DO NOT JUST SHOW UP.




Tues Oct 19: Need volunteers to help re-package left over items and move the boxes into storage, 

                         4-6pm (all spots taken)

Weds Oct 20: Need volunteers to help re-package left over items and move the boxes into storage, 

                       4-6pm (all spots taken)


Virtual Volunteering:

1. Saleena is allowing 5 articles per week per person for any articles written by teens.  You can write anything: reviews of anything (personal reviews only); thoughts, informative articles, poetry, or stories.  Be aware that these are aimed at your peers, not a school project; so you can write in a more informal style (but if writing factual information remember to cite sources).  One of the teen staff members will check your article after you email it, any editing and changes have to be done before the article is posted.  You will be informed whether it needs work or if it is to be posted, but posting may be delayed if there are a lot of articles.  You need to write an article, lists of facts will no longer be accepted, as lists are not the sharing thoughts or opinions and can be easily obtained from anywhere.

2.  Another way to volunteer is to make a YouTube video for your fellow teens, or for the little ones (if that is your preference).  Your video must be submitted to Saleena in a format that can be uploaded to YouTube, and you must clearly state what audience the video is for and your name.  You will receive 5 hours per video uploaded. No more than 3 per week allowed.



Remember, you cannot volunteer if you don't have a current application on file.  Everyone needs to re-submit their application every September.

Email for Saleena and teen staff is either teens@sbpl.info  or sbplteenvolunteers@gmail.com 

Thank you for volunteering at the Library!
