Does anybody have any experience doing this? I once fancied volunteering my time at a local animal shelter, but I was sidetracked by the capricious nature of fate. While I understand the needs of my own community and feel they take precedence over my own personal desires, sometimes a young man must fight tooth and nail with the guarantee that he may not find it at all. I’m still waiting.
There is a library just down the road from my residence, and considering I enjoy reading, I think it would be both practical and useful to me, my community, and the people in it. The problem is knowing where to start.
Any advice to achieve this goal? Should I prepare myself in some way, or is it just as simple as walking in there and asking for direction? Do you have any experience or stories volunteering?
