We appreciate the public’s help in working with and volunteering for the following organizations: Friends of the Library, Home Delivery Service, Literacy Volunteers of America, Community Action and Lifelong Learning, Volunteer Opportunities Guide for Eau Claire County.
Friends of the Library:
The library has many volunteer opportunities available. Friends of the Library coordinates library volunteers and sponsers other activities such as our books sales.
Home Delivery Service:
Homebound residents of Eau Claire and surrounding communities can have library materials delivered to their door. Home Delivery Services of L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library serves people confined at home or in a health-care facility due to illness, physical handicap, disability or lack of transportation. Volunteers and library staff deliver books and other materials to participants every three weeks. There is no charge for this service. For more information, call 715-839-4857.
If you think you might like to deliver library materials to a homebound customer in your neighborhood or near your workplace, please feel free to call the Home Delivery Coordinator at 715-839-4857. As little as one hour of your time every three weeks would make a big difference in the life of someone who would be most grateful.
