Do you have a few hours to spare each week?  Maybe you are retired, maybe you need some work experience, maybe you just like to help your community. Then volunteer.

Try volunteering at your favorite place that needs you. It could be the library, or it could be a school, rest home, humane society, art center or other organization.

The library uses volunteers to shelve books and work on special projects. And of course, the Friends of the Orland Library always welcomes new members to support the library.

We love our volunteers! But the library isn’t the only place to put your talents to use.  Ask around— Communities are full of places that need volunteers.

Volunteering gives you a reason to get out of the house and it benefits your community. It will make you feel good about yourself and the friends you make.

And if you are already a volunteer, Thank you! You make America a great place to live.
