Done in a Day Group Volunteer Project

Volunteer groups (10 -15 individuals) can help us sort and box books at our Memorial Nottingham Branch facility . These books are then distributed to our partner organizations to serve families in need. Volunteers will provide a valuable service while enjoying a great atmosphere and other library advocates.  Our Done in a Day Project last approximately 2 hours and are ideal for volunteer groups and corporate volunteer programs.  VOLUNTEER GROUP REQUEST FORM
