    Are these volunteer opportunities only for highschool students? It has been a dream of mine for a long time to make an impact on people’s lives through reading and I think volunteering could be a great start for me

    Do you have a need for a volunteer to reshelve books, help people photocopy, file, or assemble materials. My 12 year old niece is looking for a volunteer opportunity.
