Campaign for the New Ridgefield Library
There are many ways you can help out with our building project and capital campaign, from hosting an informational coffee for your neighbors to stuffing envelopes for a special event. Whether you have specialized skills or just want to lend a hand, we can find a job for you!
Summer Reading Program 2013
The Ridgefield Library has changed the way people will log and report their progress during the Summer Reading Program. This means there will be changes to our volunteer program as well. The Library will be looking for approximately 40 volunteers, each of whom can make a significant time commitment (16 to 20 hours between June 24 and August 10). Applicants must complete this application, sign and return it to Geri Diorio at the Library or at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 3.
Community Service Volunteering
Need to log some community service hours for school, church or synagogue, Scouts or another club, or resume for college? Get on the list to help out with shelving, mailings, special events and whatever else comes up. Scheduling varies based on the project. Individual longer-term special projects also may be arranged.
Homebound Delivery Service
The Library’s Homebound Delivery Service supplies library materials directly to those unable to come to the Library on their own due to health or mobility problems. Drivers are needed to make deliveries and pickups on a pre-arranged schedule.
Community Outreach Committees
Volunteers with an interest in the development, implementation and promotion of Library programs and services for various user groups are invited to get involved with our Community Outreach Committees. Groups are working with staff to improve and expand service to preschoolers and their families, elementary and middle schoolers and older adults. Current and recent outreach committee projects include Books for Babes, Homebound Delivery Service, Fall for the Library card registration event and the Preschool Explorers Day.
CURRENT OPPORTUNITY! The "Younger Set" committee is seeking new members to help plan and put on activities for preschoolers and their families. Contact Mary Rindfleisch at 203-438-2282 x1009 or email@example.com if you would like to get involved.
Friends of the Library
The Friends is an independent volunteer organization that organizes book sales and other activities to raise funds to support Library programs and services. Volunteers are always needed to help out the weeks of the spring and fall used book sales, to sort incoming donated books on an ongoing basis, and to research and process items for our Internet book sales operation. Contact Volunteer Scheduling Coordinator Ginny Canfield at 203-438-9890 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
