You can be a part of history in the making! Building and developing library reources requires various skills and talents. We offer an opportunity for you to become involved and make a significant contribution! The Urshan Library has some rewarding volunteer experiences available. This is an excellent way for paraprofessionals to be trained and mentored into the library science field.
Labeling- The unending task of matching new acquisitions to spine labels and bar codes and then marking and identifying each item for proper shelving and circulation is one of our greatest needs.
Shelving- Patrons are asked not to reshelve the books they peruse and use. To maintain proper records of use and better shelf order at the end of the day, only library staff may place items back in their proper place. This task requires a person with good attention to detail.
Computer Lab Assistant- The computer lab is extremely popular and requires constant attention. Routine system maintenance procedures, and regular cleaning of keyboards, mouse works, and monitors is necessary. A person familiar with Microsoft software and network operations is essential.
Cataloger- Matching newly acquired material to computer records (MARC) is a very technical and detailed process. Persons with good concentration and a love for accuracy will be cordially welcomed.
