ALAMANCE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARIES:
The Outreach Department of the Alamance County Public Libraries needs volunteers to deliver and pick up books and other materials from homebound patrons! Anyone who would have trouble coming into the library is eligible for Home Delivery of materials, but we need volunteers to make this service work well. You would deliver once a month to the same people/location, and pick up their materials from the previous month. Currently, we are delivering to people's/facility's front doors, but we hope to be able to go back to visiting with our patrons in the future. All materials are put in cloth bags, and the bags are placed in a rolling crate. You can pick up and return the crate at any library branch. This does require some lifting of bags/crates into your personal car.
Volunteers need to fill out a county volunteer form and background check authorization.
For more information or to get the forms, call Mary Beth at (336) 229-3588 (ask for Outreach or choose 2 from the automated menu).
