Friends support summer reading

The Friends are happy to announce our support of the Tualatin Public Library’s 2021 summer reading program. This year we’re contributing in three areas:

  1. Summer reading grand prizes — a LEGO treehouse kit and a gift certificate for a glassblowing class for two at the Live Love Glass studio.
  2. Prizes for the Tualatin’s Got Talent kids’ talent show on July 29th.
  3. Music programs — a concert by the Three for Silver trio on July 1st and a series of three concerts in August by the Willamette Valley Chamber Music Festival.

Check out the library’s calendar for a full list of fun summer reading activities.

Two volunteer opportunities

We currently have two volunteer opportunities with Friends of the Tualatin Library:

  • Membership Coordinator – If you’re detail oriented, know your way around a basic spreadsheet, and like to work independently from home in your jammies, please consider volunteering as Membership Coordinator. This person keeps track of membership renewals and new members. We are currently using mailings to reach out for renewals, but are open to ideas from a new coordinator to streamline the process. The time commitment during the membership drive is 1-2 hours per week but is minimal the rest of the year. Check out the job description for additional information.        
  • Newsletter Editor – Do you like to write? Looking for a volunteer opportunity with a fun nonprofit? The Friends have an opening for Newsletter Editor. You would write and edit stories for the newsletter, monitor emails and comments from readers, and maintain the newsletter mailing list. Our newsletter is in email format using the MailChimp platform. It’s currently published several times per year; the frequency is open to change depending on the volunteer’s availability. This position requires a commitment of 5 to 10 hours per month. You’ll find additional information in the Newsletter Editor job description.

If you’re interested in either of these positions, please contact President Laura Baker at president@friendsoftualatinlibrary.org
