Volunteer roles

These are our current and upcoming opportunities for volunteers.

Greeters

Greeters will be scheduled for 2-hour shifts and will be stationed near the Library entrance.

We will train you to

  • welcome the public back to the Library
  • let people know what to expect and what’s required
  • monitor the number of people entering and leaving the building so we stay within occupancy limits
  • answer routine questions or refer questions to us
  • direct people to the right staff member or area

Storytime Readers and Presenters

Library programs are now online, both live on Zoom and as prerecorded videos. We’ll work with you to coordinate scheduling, solve technical issues, and promote your program.

We hope before long to resume offering programs in person.

Storytime Readers

Our first priority is for readers to create online storytimes for children from preschool to grade 2. Storytimes run for 30 minutes.

Presenters

Are you interested in creating other programs? We know there are many talented people in Kingston, and we invite you to propose a program for any age. You could teach a craft or a skill, or share your interests with the community.

      This is a proposed streamlined version of categories.

      Each post should have categories from each column so that it shows up on the page(s) that call it.

      Each super-category (heading of the table)  has at least one associated page that aggregates posts as they’re made.

      Featured is for specific audience pages (kids page, teen page); front is for the main landing page of the whole site.  The ordinals are for specific placement.
