Details:

Cbus Libraries’ mission is to champion Central Ohio libraries, library enthusiasts and the love of reading. They explore and promote libraries of all sizes and types within the region, ranging from public to private university libraries. With school and library closures, COVID-19 has directly impacted everyone's access to stories that feed, nurture & delight us. The Books for All and Libraries Everywhere programs combat those closures by getting books to those who need them.

 

Join Besa and Cbus Libraries to bring free, high-quality literature directly to Central Ohio homes. As a volunteer, you'll deliver books to households using your own vehicle. We'll meet outside of Cbus Libraries where you'll be provided with an overview and route delivery instructions.

 

Cbus Libraries will provide gloves and hand sanitizer. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival. Limited interaction will take place during this volunteer event. Volunteers are required to bring their own mask or face covering, Cbus Libraries has a limited number. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
