As many of you may be aware, a lot of our counties and cities in Florida are having budgetary problems nowadays. This is not unique to Florida. Even as faraway as California, the public coffers are less than full.
This of course can affect some of the public services we have come to enjoy. While they may not save our lives like the police or fire stations might, institutions like libraries help enrich our lives greatly. Not to mention the educational value they provide.
So, since money is tight, it is very likely that volunteers who can help the staff members out could be even more vital now. I know a lot of people hold down full-time jobs already, but we do have a lot of retirees that might just be looking for a pleasant way to help out the community they live in. This could be the perfect way to do it!
The Pasco County Library site says that they use adult volunteers to:
- Shelve books
- Work on projects assigned by the librarians
- Assist during book sales
Assist during special events that take place at the library
If you would like to help them out, you can download an application by clicking on the following link: Download VolunteerForm
Once you have filled it in, take it to the library where you would like to volunteer your services. They are all over the county and one is likely to be located near to where you live. To see their locations, just click on the following link that will give you each branch's location, hours, contact numbers, etc.: http://power.pasco.lib.fl.us/locations_and_hours.shtml
Please assist if you can and help keep our library system up and running in the future!
