BRC Looking for Volunteers to Assist with Library

You don’t have to know the Dewey Decimal System to “play librarian” for one local retirement community!

Brethren Retirement Community needs volunteers to assist residents with checking books, magazines and other materials in and out from the organization’s on-site library. Volunteers will also return items to shelves as needed. This opportunity is available to volunteers who are at least 18 years old every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or Tuesday and Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

“The library aide gives support to the residents by assisting with reading selection and checking books in and out. Their visual presence assures visitors to the library that help is readily available,” says Janet Ashworth, Volunteer Coordinator Brethren Retirement Community.

To learn more about this volunteer opportunity or other opportunities within our community, please contact HandsOn West Central Ohio at (937) 548-8002, ext. 211, or visit HandsOn West Central Ohio, including Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, is a program of Council on Rural Services. This program receives funding from Darke County United Way, Corporation for National Service, Area Agency on Aging, PSA2, and the Darke County HOPE Foundation.
