The Main Library is in need of adult and teen volunteers to help us keep up with the demand for library materials. Assignments include shelving returned items, checking shelves to make sure items are in proper order, and locating and collecting materials that have been requested (think library scavenger hunt!). Whether you are looking for a long-term volunteer assignment or fulfilling your school service hour requirement, we'd love to hear from you. The hours are flexible! Information and applications are available at http:// volunteer.ualibrary.org.
