Who volunteers at Ulysses Philomathic Library?
The Library currently enjoys the support of dozens of volunteers who generously share their knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm with our community. Their jobs range from pulling weeds and shoveling snow, to shelving books and answering phones, all tasks critical to carrying out the mission of our Library.
Volunteers come to us from a variety of backgrounds. From retirees who want meaningful work to students fulfilling community service credits, we provide training and support to volunteers from all walks of life.
You must be 14 years of age or older to volunteer.
There are many reasons to volunteer at the Library. Here are a few:
- Meet new people and make new friends.
- Gain skills and experience to enter or re-enter the workforce
- Fulfill a community service requirement
- Learn more about Library’s programs and community offerings
