Volunteers provide services such as shelving, book mending, genealogy searches, reference assistance, customer service, computer assistance, and math tutoring. ESL teachers and Small Talk volunteers facilitate small group conversations for individuals with English as a second language. Donation and book sorters assist with organizing books, magazines, and media donated to the libraries.
Community needs for Plano Public Libraries' educational, recreational, and informational services are continually increasing. Working together, volunteers and paid staff can help meet these increased demands despite a limited budget. Not only can volunteers help the library--it's a two-way street. Volunteers acquire new skills, meet interesting people and experience the satisfaction of sharing their talents with others.
