Want to be a Friendly Visitor?

The Friendly Visitor Service matches volunteers with people who can't visit the library on their own. Volunteers are needed to select and deliver library materials to Tigard area patrons who can’t get to the library on their own.
  • Training provided.
  • Highly flexible schedule and hours.
Question: What do Friendly Visitors do?
Answer: They take books and other library materials to people who can’t otherwise get to the Library. They visit, share interests, and talk with the homebound.
Question: Who qualifies to be a Friendly Visitor?
Answer: Sincere people who care about people, books, and learning are invited to participate in our next training session. Friendly Visitors must provide their own transportation and are subject to state criminal and DMV background checks.
Question: How may I find out more?
Answer: Please contact Katherine Nelson, Volunteer Coordinator
503-718-2516 or email KatherineN@tigard-or.gov

Volunteers often ask what the library needs most. The answer is easy—Shelving

The task that never ends. Volunteer shelvers say that the job is rewarding, a light workout, and they discover corners of the library they’d never seen. Consider helping with this challenging and needed task at the library by signing up for a New Volunteer Orientation.
