Outreach Books Volunteer Opportunity

The Library Outreach Books Program is looking for a new coordinator. The Outreach Books Program provides large-print books to 5 senior living residences in Two Harbors, every 4-6 weeks. People who are not able to get out to go to the library and those with eye-sight challenges truly appreciate the delivery of books to their residence. You’ll make a real difference in their world!

The position entails packing books, delivery and collection, and checking in books, as well as processing new books to get them ready for circulation. It will take about 10-12 flexible hours a month, on your schedule. The current coordinator is willing to work with you until you feel comfortable and there is detailed guidance available. You will be free to make changes to the program as you see room for improvement or innovation. You should be able to lift boxes containing about 18 books and should have access to a vehicle for deliveries. If you would prefer to help with the program instead of coordinating it, there’s a role for you as well.

For more details on what’s involved, feel free to email
