Ex Libris Demonstration: Want to Volunteer? (Something Old/Something New)

Ex Libris Demonstration: Want to Volunteer? (Something Old/Something New) | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

 With the holidays a past memory and cold days of winter settling in, you may be looking for a way to share your time with others in a meaningful way—so you’re invited to attend an Ex Libris presentation entitled “Something Old-Something  New” on Monday, January 13, at 11 a.m. at the Blount County Public Library.

Tennessee Library Association's insight:

Want to Volunteer for Ex Libris? At Blount County Public Library

 

 

 

            Ex Libris, a volunteer outreach program supported by Blount County Friends of the Library, provides residents of local senior communities with lively and entertaining programs on a wide range of topics utilizing stories, poetry, art, and humor.  See how much fun it can be “spinning straw into gold” – that is, creating an hour long program from nothing … nothing other than an idea, a concept, a passion, a personal collection. Learn why volunteers have been part of Ex Libris for a decade and still continue to volunteer.   

            Ex Libris, begun in 2004,  has been entertaining and informing folks ever since. To date, nearly 10,000 people have attended presentations by “Friends From The Library”.

And the Ex Libris team continues to grow, capitalizing on the talents of its members.  Under the direction of Barbara Zurl and Program Coordinator, Dolores Philpot, the group seeks to meet some of the ever-increasing needs of the senior community for worthwhile activities. 

To volunteer, a person needs: 

§  a willingness to create and deliver a 45-60 minute program,

§  a desire to share with and learn from members of what Tom Brokaw has called “The Greatest Generation,”

§  an affinity for fun and laughter, and of course,

§  a love of continuing to learn.

 

If you happen to be looking for a new and rewarding volunteer opportunity (or are just curious), you’re invited to join the Ex Libris team at the library to take a look at their presentation. For additional information contact Barbara Zurl, Director, at 865-977-5034 or e-mail atbadger630@aol.com.

            Members of the Ex Libris Team will be at this program and ready and willing to answer any questions.

            Free and open to the public, the program is sponsored by the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville.

           For further information about library programs or services, call the library at 982-0981 or visit the Web site atwww.blountlibrary.org . To sign up to receive a monthly calendar by email, go to the library’s Home Page, click on the “News and Events” tab, and then “Calendar of Events Signup” and type in your email address.
