Looking for ways to give back to your community? y, 140 S. Glendora Avenue, is offering several opportunities to volunteer and donate in the coming weeks.
The Library is looking for enthusiastic community members to fill open volunteer positions in shelving, book care and children’s programming. Teens, ages 14 to 18, and adults are encouraged to look into these volunteer opportunities at the Glendora Public Library.
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of three months for one to two hours per week. Volunteer hours are flexible and can be scheduled around classes, work or other commitments.
Pick up a volunteer application at the Library or download the application off the web site at www.glendoralibrary.org. If you have any questions regarding volunteering, call the Volunteer Coordinator Bonnie Deering at (626) 852-4809.
The Friends Plaza Book Loft, located on the second level of the Library, is accepting gently used fiction, non-fiction and children’s books, VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs and magazines.
Donated items can be placed on the Donation Table in the upper lobby of the library. All donated items are tax deductible through the Glendora Public Library Friends Foundation, a 50l (c) (3) non-profit organization.
Each month, there is a ‘Super 7 Day Sale’ on the main floor of the library (with all items 50 cents) as well as a 50 percent off on selected items in the Bookstore.
Proceeds from the Friends Plaza Book Loft support the Library’s adult literacy programs, youth and teen programs and provide funds for materials and library programs.
The Library will be celebrating National Library Month from April 2 to 30. As part of this celebration, the Glendora Public Library will hold a food (non-perishable) and toiletry item drive in support of Shepherd’s Pantry. The library will provide collection boxes on the main floor during the month of April where community members can donate their items.
Items needed by Shepherd’s Pantry include canned goods such as vegetables, beans, tuna and fruit; jars and packaged food such as rice, potatoes, pasta, cereal, peanut butter and jelly; and non-food items such as diapers, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper, toothpaste and clothing.
A complete list of recommended food items is available on the Shepherd’s Pantry website at www.shepherdspantry.com.
