Adopt a Shelf is a monthly volunteering commitment for those who want to help out an a limited basis. The volunteer is assigned a section of shelves in fiction or non-fiction, which they are asked to keep tidy and in order. This is accomplished by shelf reading for 1-2 hours per month. Volunteers set their own schedule, some come in weekly others come in every other month (we ask initially for a monthly commitment). Call the Information Services Desk or email us.
