We currently have a couple of volunteer opportunities for community members to lend their talents. Of course, if you have an idea for an activity or program and would like to help make it a reality, by all means stop in to the library and share it with us!

The Prattsburg Free Library is currently seeking a board member. The board makes recommendations and acts as a liaison between the library, local government and the community. In addition, the board monitors library operations and advises on such things as policies, plans, programs, and the budget. Most board members are also active volunteers, contributing outside of their role as board members. It’s a great way to make a difference in your community and there is some fun to be had too.

The Prattsburg Free Library is currently seeking one or two individuals to serve as facilitators for an introductory computer science program. You don’t need prior computer science (CS) knowledge or education training to get involved. All you need is enthusiasm to help young people learn and explore. During CS First clubs, volunteers are typically asked to introduce the club and work one-on-one with participants as they watch videos and build projects. Volunteers answer student questions (with the help of Google-provided solution sheets), give encouragement, and keep the club on schedule.

If you are interested in either of these opportunities. please contact Kathy Zajchenko at kathtony@empacc.net.
