Volunteers at The Cornwall Library
The Cornwall Library thrives on the time and experience of its volunteers. Many are trained on the Circulation and Cataloging database, Evergreen 2.0. They learn the procedures and steps for: searching for, adding and deleting patrons, checking items in and out and entering books and other items. Volunteers search for items and place holds on them for patrons. Shelving books, straightening the shelves and assisting with weeding (removing) the collection are among the tasks asked of volunteers. Most give three and a half hours per week helping serve the patrons of Cornwall.
In addition to assistance from volunteers, the Library offers a Library Page program. Pages must be in Grade 7 or higher and commit at least 2 hours a week to working at the Library. A Page position may be the first opportunity a youth has to acquire job skills needed for their future employment-politeness, making eye contact, talking to patrons, timeliness, appropriate dress, working with others and promoting the Library among peers. Page tasks include all that regular volunteers are asked to do. Two Pages work during the school year and one or two additional Pages may be trained for the summer months.
