Volunteer Month

SDCL recognizes Service Learners every year for Volunteer Month.

SDCL is honored to have dedicated and hardworking volunteers who donate hundreds of thousands of hours of their time to the library each year. Without their help, SDCL would not be able to offer as many wonderful, life changing programs as they do. 

Interested in volunteering for the library? Contact your local branch or visit http://www.sdcl.org/volunteer.html
