5 Reasons to Volunteer at Your Local Library

Posted on:

Are you looking for a fun and meaningful way to spend your time this summer? Consider becoming a volunteer at your local library! There are so many benefits of volunteering, and here are just a few of them: 

 

1. Give Back to Your Community 

Libraries are hubs of resources and information for the community, and by becoming a volunteer, you are helping to further this mission.  

2. Boost Your Resume 

Volunteering boosts your skills in teamwork and empathy, which are applicable to practically every job. In addition, employers are impressed by volunteer experience as it shows you filled your time by serving others. 

3. Learn New Things 

From soft skills like organization to more library-specific tasks such as shelving books, there is so much to learn. You may even find a new dream job! 

4. Make Friends 

The people you meet through volunteering will most likely be around the same age as you and have similar interests, and you’ll get to spend time together every week. 

5. Have Fun! 

Although volunteering can be hard work at times, it is super fun, especially at the library. You’ll be able to help librarians create displays and run fun programs, and you may even become a puppeteer!
