Tully's Terrific Volunteers

The Tully Community Branch Library hosts 15-20 programs every week the Library is open, many of which are presented by Tully's volunteers.

Volunteer led programs offered this summer include: Basic Computer ClassBasic Computer Class in Vietnamese, Citizenship ClassESL Conversation ClubESL Reading ClassESL Writing Class, Puppet Show with Ms. MargaretReading BuddiesStories with Ms. KathySummer Reading Challenge, Summer Tutoring and Wednesday Fun Day.

In addition to presenting their own programs Tully's volunteers assist in numerous ways behind the scenes. From preparing materials for art programs, to shelf-reading children's picture books to bagging lunches for a free summer lunch program, to cleaning tables and computers, Tully's volunteers are hard at work every day the Library is open. In the past year more than 140 volunteers logged over 3,000 hours of service.

The Tully Library relies heavily on its volunteer force to provide services to our community. Library staff alone could not provide the variety and abundance of programs without volunteer assistance.

Thank you to all of the Tully Community Branch volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering at the Tully Library, please see our current volunteer position vacancies.
