Volunteers Needed

Currently we are seeking volunteers for:

Website focus group - This focus group will meet the evening of March 28, 2018 from 6:00pm-7:30pm in the Amax Room of the library. Subsequent work will be done electronically.

Driver for adult programming - Drivers will need to have a valid Colorado driver's license and be insured. This service will be for offering transportation for people who live out of the city limits or need a ride to the library for a specific program.

Support for senior and homebound services - Also requires a valid Colorado driver's license, be insured, and own car. This program is in development, but we will likely need people to deliver books, provide transportation to seniors or other disabled patrons.

Lake County Public Library offers use of Colorado Parks and Wildlife pass

Lake County Public Library has partnered with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to loan a state park entry pass for one week. This partnership provides an outdoor learning experience for library cardholders and expands public library services. The goal of the program is to provide residents an opportunity to explore state parks before purchasing a park pass, and the hope is that library cardholders will enjoy the experience they will want to purchase their own park passes.

Starting June 20, the first day of summer, the public library will have two backpacks to loan that each contain a state park pass hangtag for the rearview mirror, one set of binoculars, a Colorado wildlife guide, a Colorado trees and wildflower guide, a guide to Colorado’s 42 state parks, a Leave No Trace card, an activity ideas list and a program evaluation card. We ask that you inventory all items in the backpack to make sure they are in good repair before return, and to fill out the evaluation form to help sustain the program. Packs and passes will circulate to adults, with no holds or renewals.
