High School Community InvolvementVolunteering at the Library can count as the Ontario Ministry of Education requirement of community involvement for high school students. Our student volunteers help with filing, shelf-reading, crafts and special projects. As student volunteering opportunities are limited, placement is not guaranteed and will depend on the Librarys needs.
Other Library Volunteer OpportunitiesSome of our volunteers also help us with shelf maintenance, material sorting, indoor plants maintenance, filing, minor repairs, special events and library programs such as book clubs and storytime.
