Patron Count Week

Patron Count Week is coming, and that means we need volunteers!  So what does that mean for you?

Patron Count Week is October 15-20th.  We need a volunteer to sit at a table in our lobby every hour the library is open to the public to count each man, woman, and child who enters.  Sound like a big job?  It’s not!  Anyone is welcome to help out.  In between counting, you can even catch up on the latest celebrity gossip with a magazine or keep your nose in your favorite book!

This special volunteer opportunity is the ONLY activity we do not require volunteers to attend volunteer orientation or have an application on file.  (However, if you would like your volunteer activities to count, you will need to fill out a Volunteer Application and attend a New Volunteer Orientation.)  If you are interested in helping with Patron Count, call the library at 281-550-0885 or stop by the Information Desk to sign up.
