Volunteer: Volunteer participant in Poverty Simulation March 31st at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lynnwood

Volunteer to be a character in the upcoming poverty simulation. We invite you to join us on Friday, March 31st for an interactive workshop, the Cost of Poverty Experience Simulation (COPES), sponsored by the City of Lynnwood, United Way of Snohomish County, and Leadership Snohomish County. Participants will be divided into small "family" teams and experience challenges faced by people in situational or generational poverty. Past participants have reported gaining a deeper understanding of the complexity of poverty and have gone on to create changes in their own agencies, schools, and public policy to address needs and opportunities. A facilitated debrief leads to concrete next steps for learning, volunteering, giving and advocating for change. Volunteers are need to play character roles that include being an employer, a pawn shop owner, the gas station and more. Volunteers are required to attend a 30 minute phone conference orientation and participate for the entire duration of the event.

Volunteer: Media inspection and repair volunteers needed!

DVDs, Audio Books, and CDs are an important part of the Sno-Isle Libraries collection. Join us at our Service Center in Marysville on Wednesdays and help inspect, clean, and repair various media materials for our library customers. This is a great opportunity for anyone who likes to be hands on while keeping up with the latest titles.

This position prepares damaged media items for resurfacing by replacing damaged cases, pulling discs and placing them into a bin, and matching the items after they have been resurfaced. This process is done by pulling the liners out of the cases, pull the discs out of the case and match again by matching our barcode numbers to the disc.

Volunteers are needed anytime on Wednesdays between 9am-4:30pm.
