The Los Angeles Public Library strives to offer volunteers opportunities to use their skills and knowledge to assist staff with providing service enhancements and to strengthen the relationships between the Library and the diverse communities it serves.
The Source is a free event hosted at Central Library once a month and is aimed at providing essential services to community members experiencing homelessness. The Source brings community agencies together in one location to facilitate emergency shelter needs, DMV services, veteran services, health care services, CES housing, and more.
Volunteers will serve at the registration and refreshment tables, as ushers to guide patrons from room to room, as runners to assist staff, and will have other duties as assigned by staff depending on the resources present at each month’s event.
The Source is held on the last Tuesday of each month. Volunteers are requested to sign up if they can assist as ongoing volunteers at The Source event from 12:15-3:30 p.m. on the dates listed below. To sign-up as a volunteer for The Source, please e-mail Karcy Bowles at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: The Source.
