Pope County Library System Seeks Volunteers
The Pope County Library System (PCLS) is recruiting volunteers to help in our programming, Circulation, Genealogy, Interlibrary Loan Departments, and the Book Store in the Russellville Library. To adhere to social distancing guidelines, we are currently only allowing one volunteer at a time in each department. Volunteers must also wear a mask and gloves.
PCLS serves an average of 350 people per day in its Russellville Branch and 700 per day during the Summer in its Headquarter library alone. Programming increased 70% in 2012 and 10% in 2013. The Russellville Library relied on 24 volunteers to help the system serve the 156,640 patrons who visited the libraries as the economy struggled to recover.
We are looking for creative, organized, team players who have a heart to serve and invite individuals, Civic Clubs, retirees, College and High School Groups, and professionals who would like to do pro bono work such as assisting us in writing a: Public Services Plan, Building Facilities Plan, Advocacy Plan, Marketing Plan, and a Fundraising Plan so we can prepare to expand the libraries 4 ½ times their size.
