I’d posted about a local book fair event that will fundraise for Charlotte Mecklenburg Libraries earlier today so thought this new info deserved mention as well.
The Matthews Library Branch is in need of volunteers, and is accepting online or in person volunteer applications through August 6th.
Apparently 50 volunteers are needed to provide support to Matthews Library Branch staff, and they’re looking for people willing to donate at least 2 hours a week and commit to that for 6 months.
Two hours a week in the scheme of things really isn’t much. Let’s face it most of us spend more than that watching tv or surfing the web. If you live in the Matthews (or Southeast Charlotte NC) area, are willing and able to donate some of your time and are interested in volunteering, visit the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County volunteer application page and submit an application.
The news article I noticed was at WCNC’s site – Matthews Library In Need of Volunteers, and it doesn’t mention whether other branches are also seeking volunteers but that’s quite possible.
Thanks for reading!
