Alameda County Library Volunteer Opportunity

Teen Volunteer - Clerical Support The Alameda County Library Foundation (ACLF) has a need for on-going clerical support. Tasks may include filing, preparing mailings for various Fundraising Campaigns and/or light data entry occasionally. Ideally teens would commit to working 1.5 - 3 hours per week between Monday and Thursday. Work hours would be approximately 3:30pm – 5:00pm.

The Foundation will work with teens to determine best schedules within the above timeframe. The project(s) are underway year round. ACLF is located in the Library Administration building adjacent to the Fremont Main Library; 2450 Stevenson Blvd., Fremont, CA 94538.

ACLF is the fundraising arm of the Alameda County Library. We support 16 branches and the Bookmobile and work closely with our County libraries to help garner financial support for programs, services, books, materials and capital. We also manage several fun and innovative fundraisers throughout the year to engage the community, build awareness and encourage Library support. Applications can be downloaded from the ACLF website.
