Book some time to help out at the public library
By Linda Fields Gold, Staff Writer

South Pasadena Library, 1100 Oxley St.
The advantage of working at the library is that it connects you to your community and its activities, you become a part of educational and cultural events, you make the library a better place and use your talents and skills to stay active, and you meet nice people.
South Pasadena needs teen volunteers and adults who are interested in helping with children's storytimes. Or, if you like working quietly behind the scenes, you might choose to mend or re-shelve items.
People who reshelve recently returned items are very much in demand. Shelf readers are vital and make sure materials are in order so that they can be easily found by the next patron.
International Collection Aides use foreign language skills, including Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.
Computer Data Input Aides input data for forms, databases, indexes, charts, reports, and statistical tracking.
If you are interested in assisting at South Pasadena, you must stop in and fill out an application. All library volunteers receive training and recognition at an annual event. Those who work with children must pass a background security clearance.
For more information on the South Pasadena options, please call (626) 403-7330, Library Administration offices.
