Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities at the OLL

Educational Event Managers

The Events Committee is looking for Event Managers, set-up volunteers and check-in help. We provide job instructions and support for all Volunteer positions. All talks/lectures are from 5-7pm. Volunteers arrive at 4:15.

Be a part of our dynamic group. Event Manager Volunteers should be comfortable interacting with people and speaking in front of groups.

Volunteer and attend the event for FREE! Contact Suzanne Lyons at wealthy.lyons@gmail.com if interested.


Volunteer in the Library

Consider joining our community of volunteers by working in the library itself.  Learn more about the OLL collection by working in the Book Processing area. Join the excitement at the Circulation Desk. Provide warm and cold drinks and good eats in our Library Café.  Welcome our guests and members to the library by Greeting them at the door. Enhance your knowledge of OLL while having fun and making a difference. Fill in the Volunteer Application here or contact the Volunteer Coordinator and they'll get you started.

  • Title

  • Author

  • Why it was a good read

  • If for children, include targeted ages

  • Reviewer’s name

The Book Committee reserves the right to edit the review for grammar and clarity. Submit your review to Siobhan at siobhan.grogan@yahoo.com . We look forward to sharing patron’s favorites

English Speakers Needed

OLL's Intercambio, which meets every Saturday from 10 AM-12 PM, continues to attract a full house each week. More English speakers are now needed to balance out the participation since our winter members have flown home. Please join us...it's an excellent way to work on your Spanish and help our Oaxacan neighbors improve their English while learning more about each other in the process.

Are you experienced in childhood development, library science, children’s literature?

The Book Committee is recruiting a very special volunteer, one with rather special knowledge. This person would be responsible for weekly reviews of the children’s English language collection, the Libros Para Pueblos collection, and the young readers Spanish collection, with a view to keeping the books in order, removing damaged books, integrating new ones, etc. There are surely readers out there who were, or know someone who was, experienced in childhood development, library science, children’s literature. We would dearly love for that person to step forward. Please let us know if you are interested in this intriguing offer.
