Volunteers needed for ‘Words on Wheels’
   
Share your love of reading and make new friends while providing a valuable service. The Traveling Library Center (TLC), which serves nearly 400 eligible residents of King County who are unable to visit their library, needs your help. Once a month, TLC staff members visit retirement and nursing homes, in addition to other household patrons, delivering library materials they may not otherwise have access to. Volunteers receive training on how to choose materials and use the Library Catalog to find special materials. The schedule is flexible, requiring about 2 to 4 hours per patron. Requirements: • Must be at least 18 years old. • Must have reliable transportation. • Commit to visit at least one patron, once a month for one year.
For more information or to volunteer contact Susan LaFantasie at 425-369-3235 or slafanta@kcls.org.
