Are there volunteer opportunities?
I’m glad you’re interested in volunteering (and sorry I didn’t find out about your comment sooner). This year, we have a full crew of Homework Help volunteers at the Douglass-Truth branch. We always take on new volunteers at the beginning of the school year, so please contact the library in July or August. Other branches of The Seattle Public Library system may need more volunteers during this school year. Please contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator at 206-386-4614.
