Make a difference and become a Foundation volunteer!

There are many ways to help the Foundation spark enthusiasm and spread the word about all the Somers Library has to offer. Consider giving some of your time, energy and talents to the Foundation for the benefit of the Library.

Types of volunteer opportunities

Special community events — As a community event volunteer, you can assist with overall event planning, or simply help at the event itself.

Fundraising initiatives:

  • Annual used book sale — lend a hand by processing book donations as they come in, research and post books to be sold online, or work at the book sale.
  • Community book mural — Bring your creative talents to the book mural project by helping to design and paint donor book spines.
  • You may even want to apply your skills and interests to develop a new fundraiser.

Marketing campaigns and communications — Help with tasks related to social media, website, blog postings, writing and/or multimedia capturing and posting, as well as donor communications and database management.

Grant research / writing — Conduct research to identify appropriate grant programs; write and submit Foundation grants proposals.

Foundation board — The Foundation is only as effective as the people who establish goals and develop strategies that will promote our mission. If you have a passion for the Library, consider joining the board.
