Spring Volunteer Opportunities
BYOD @Tippecanoe Library [online application]
Are you curious about what the library offers online, but want somebody to help you get started? Bring your tablet, Kindle, Nook, etc. and your library card to the library and we’ll help you set up a library account on your device to download FREE books, music and magazines. We guarantee you'll find something to enjoy from home in our library databases.
The newly renovated Tippecanoe Library will begin a BYOD series starting, Tuesday, February 16. If you enjoy helping others and are tech savvy, this is the volunteer opportunity for you.
Each week you will assist patrons with a variety of eReaders and devices. Help patrons to learn the ins and outs of today’s eBook technology. Work alongside a Tippecanoe staff member to explain the free programs offered through the Milwaukee Public Library system.
