I volunteer at a small public library not far from where I live and have been doing so since last October. It's my hope that I'll be able to continue to do so despite starting grad school and a new job next month :)
I was interested to see what the director of this library had to say regarding CIPA and its impact on the library. I was pleased to learn that other than one possible exception, none of the public libraries in my county have been using the federal funds that would require them to implement Internet filters. So that's cool.
In other cool news, answerland.org, Oregon's new statewide online reference program, has recently solicited for volunteers from local area library students (those attending various distance programs). Of course I raised my hand and now it looks as though I'll be attending a short training course next week and on my way to volunteering. Yay!
The project itself is still in pilot mode with approximately 21 libraries statewide participating. I'm interested in seeing how it goes and if I can become involved in other ways over time.
