Tualatin Public Library's Amazing Volunteers

News & Events - Tue, 2015-02-10 09:00
Volunteers at Tualatin Public Library make a difference in their community.
Recently profiled by The Times Tigard-Tualatin, Tualatin’s volunteer tutor program connects instructors one-on-one with those looking to learn a skill.

Volunteer Coordinator Margie Bradley says, "the best part about my job is I spend my day working with [volunteers] whose hearts are leading them around, and there’s nothing better than that."
Another volunteer organization, Mission:Citizen, is making a big contribution by preparing legal residents for US citizenship. Made up of students from Portland's Lincoln High School, Mission:Citizen hosts citizenship classes most Mondays at Tualatin Public Library from 6pm-7:30pm. They have also recently started classes at Beaverton City Library on Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8pm.
Learn more about the work of Mission:Citizen from The Times Tigard-Tualatin.WCCLS Director Eva Calcagno praises Tualatin Public Library and library volunteers' efforts throughout Washington County, saying these stories:"not only highlight the incredible service that the volunteers provide but the trans-formative impact of libraries on the life of our communities. I think it’s really amazing that 100+ years after the start of the public library movement in America, that two of the essential elements – helping immigrants succeed and become citizens, and providing a people’s university – are still alive and well."If you are interested in volunteering at your local library, please find opportunities and contact information here: http://www.wccls.org/volunteering.
