Volunteer Appreciation and Opportunities

On Saturday September 7 the town of Innisfil hosted a community volunteer appreciation barbecue at the Innisfil Recreational Complex. More than one hundred volunteers were in attendance. The Innisfil Public Library was there not only to show our own appreciation, but also to snap a few photos of some our Town's most important people for our Faces of Innisfil collection.

Events such as these remind all of us here at the Library what an integral role volunteers play not only in the success of the community, but also how vital they are to projects like Our Stories – and that's where you come in! We always need your stories and your photographs to help keep our history alive, but we also need volunteers to help us continue our mission.

As a volunteer with Our Stories, no previous experience is required. We will help you develop new skills and sharpen existing ones by: conducting interviews, recording video, using technology like iPads, digital cameras, photo scanners, and camcorders, collecting and verifying historical information, or uploading to a website. You can choose an area that interests you and we will set you up with the rest!

For more information or to let us know of your interest, please contact the library at 705-431-7410, e-mail us at info@ourstoriesinnisfil.ca, or simply leave us a comment.
