Volunteer Fair at the Cold Spring Harbor Library
The Cold Spring Harbor Library & Environmental Center will host a volunteer fair for adults and teens on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at 95 Harbor Road in Cold Spring Harbor.
This event is an opportunity for adults and teens to learn more about local non-profit organizations in need of volunteers. “At this time of year, people are taking stock of their lives and some are looking to give back to their community, make new friends, share their expertise, or perhaps learn new skills,” said Kathy Olsen, Adult Programs Manager for the library. Approximately 20 nonprofits will be represented at the fair, including the Cold Spring Harbor Fire Department, Literacy Suffolk, Volunteers for Wildlife, the Guide Dog Foundation, Old Bethpage Village Restoration, Sagamore Hill, AARP, and the Huntington Historical Society.
“This is a great chance for high school students who need to earn service hours to discover organizations in need of their support,” said Caitlin Sempowich, Manager of Teen and Tween Services. The library offers a variety of community service programs, but the fair will allow teens to meet one-on-one with representatives, and to perhaps discover new opportunities related to their interests.
The fair is free and open to all; you do not need to reside in the Cold Spring Harbor area in order to participate.
The mission of the Cold Spring Harbor Library & Environmental Center is to serve and promote the informational, cultural, educational, and recreational needs of our residents. Additionally, we offer many exciting programs that are open to all.
