Volunteering at the Library
 
We appreciate your willingness to volunteer at the Easton Area Public Library. Whether you’re doing data entry, shelf reading, or helping at our book sales, your efforts will enhance the services we provide for the community. To make your volunteer time and efforts as rewarding as possible for you and for the Library, we are providing the following guidelines.

 

Each volunteer is assigned a supervisor who will explain the work and monitor your progress. Take any questions or ideas to your supervisor.

 

You and your supervisor will arrange a mutually convenient schedule for volunteering during Library hours. When you report, be sure to sign in and out with the day and hour in the blue book at the Circulation Desk. This book tells us who is in the building should there be an emergency. It is also our official record of your volunteer hours. We use it in our annual report of total volunteer hours. Should you be unable to report for work due to illness, family emergency, etc., please call 610-258-2917 to leave a message.

 

If you need assistance while working in a public area and your supervisor is not available, see the person working at the Reference Desk.

 

You are welcome to use the staff room during a break from your work. A soda machine, refrigerator, and microwave are available for your use.

 

Volunteers are asked to present a neat and professional appearance. Please refrain from overly casual dress and inappropriate attire like tank tops and shorts.

 

Volunteers who work with privileged or proprietary information are expected to maintain confidentiality.

 

You are advised to leave valuable articles at home. The Library does not have secure locations to store these items and cannot be responsible for their loss or theft.

 

Closings for holidays are available on the Library web site (www.eastonpl.org
). Closings for inclement weather are announced on local radio and television stations.
