Findlay-Hancock County Public Library In Need Of Volunteers

The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library is looking for volunteers to help out in a variety of capacities.

Currently, the library offers an adventure for families called StoryWalk.

Storyboards are placed throughout an area, usually a park, and readers can take a walk while reading a children’s story.

Volunteers are needed to help with preparing the storyboards for installation.

People who would like to help should contact the Youth Services Manager at 419-434-1484.

The Book Cellar, the used bookstore on the ground floor of the library overseen by the Friends of the Library, is also seeking volunteers to help in the bookstore, and to help with the Better World Books project, which helps to fund literacy initiatives worldwide.

If interested, contact Emilee at 419-434-1044.

The library’s Read for Life program is also seeking volunteers to help with tutoring.

Read for Life is designed to improve literacy in Hancock County through volunteers trained to act as tutors on a one-on-one basis with adult non-readers.

A tutor training class is scheduled for Friday, July 9th from 9:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. in Lindamood Room at the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library.

Potential adult volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.

Volunteers must be literate, however, no professional training or education is required.
