Do you love books? Why not adopt some? The library is looking for detail-oriented volunteers for our Adopt-a-Shelf program. Adopt-a-Shelf volunteers help keep the library tidy and accessible by maintaining orderly shelves, making sure books, DVDs, and audiobooks are in good condition for loan, and reducing the frustration our patrons experience when books are misplaced.

Adopt-a-Shelf volunteers donate their time to care for one section of the library by “adopting” that section. Sections are assigned based on volunteer interest and availability. All Adopt-a-Shelf volunteers commit to caring for their section for a minimum of one hour every two weeks; however, volunteers are welcome to spend more time if they like. Responsibilities of Adopt-a-Shelf volunteers include keeping books in numeric or alphabetical order, checking the condition of books, assuring that each book belongs to the Winter Park Public Library, and dusting or cleaning shelves as needed. Volunteers should be able to commit to a minimum of a three month "adoption period."

Ready to adopt? Please fill out this Volunteer Application and then register and attend the Adopt-a-Shelf volunteer orientation on March 12. Feel free to call Jody for more information.
