Library volunteers

If you’ve ever borrowed a book or used the digital resources available from the library, you know how important the Metro Library System is to continuing education and cultural enrichment opportunities. The library is a hub of knowledge and facilitates the free flow of information and ideas by providing access to materials, services and programs to Oklahoma County’s diverse community.

The Capitol Hill Library has safe and welcoming physical spaces to meet and interact with others or to sit quietly and read. When you need information to resolve an issue or answer a question, you have the support and skills to search for, evaluate and effectively use information to meet your needs. The resources you need to explore topics of personal interest and continue to learn throughout your life are found at your library.

There’s no denying the importance your local library serves in the community and in continuing education. It’s the perfect place for your teenager to spend their summer volunteering. Your child’s volunteer work will encourage participation in Summer Reading for your entire community, help children love to read, and support your library.

The Capitol Hill Library has access to information with no unnecessary restrictions or fees to ensure that everyone in the community can take advantage of the ever-growing resources and services. It’s the volunteers that help keep the library free and resources current and up to date.

Volunteers are needed June 1 to July 31, in staggering shifts from 10:00 a.m. to 8:15 p.m. Monday through Saturday. All summer reading volunteer applicants will be interviewed, and participation will be based on both interest level and how well skill set fits the library’s needs. Although Capitol Hill Library cannot guarantee a place for every person wishing to volunteer, they will certainly do their best to place you where you would be able to make a difference.

If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Annie Emmons at 405-634-6308 or email aemmons@metrolibrary.org.
