The Tyler Public Library is currently seeking volunteers to serve on their Customer Assistance, Local History, and Book Sale Teams.
Customer Assistance Team members assist Library visitors with locating and using the many resources available at the Library. These volunteers are available to assist with the computerized card catalog, direct visitors to the section where the requested material is located or just offer a friendly greeting and helping hand to the Library's valued guests.
Local History Team members will assist Library staff with research requests, local history projects using microfilm and the vertical files, and more. These volunteers are available to help push along projects that best serve the community.
Book Sale Team members will assist with the biannual book sales (March and October). Book sales require volunteers to physically move lots of books for set-up, assist patrons with purchases, and more.
