Letter: Volunteer your time and knowledge at the Computer Learning Center

The April 2 Lodi City Council meeting was focused in part upon National Volunteer Week, and especially the volunteers in Lodi who contributed multiple thousands of hours to city agencies in the past year.

The Lodi Police Department, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services, the library and others benefit immensely from the time and talent of their volunteers — so much so that much of what those departments are able to do for the public would otherwise be impossible.

That said, there is a serious need for still more volunteers. In particular, the Lodi Public Library has a state of the art Computer Learning Center that depends entirely upon volunteer staffing, but its doors are not open nearly as much as they could be if there were more helpers to man the desk. There is nothing particularly difficult about the work — anyone who regularly gets on the Internet and is comfortable with email has the basic qualifications, and the rest is easily learned.

The need for more staff in the CLC is urgent. For anyone who is modestly computer-savvy and has some free time one day a week, it’s a marvelous opportunity to provide vitally important aid to others who need to learn computer basics, often to help them get a job. For full information, contact the library’s volunteer services manager by email at literacy@lodi.gov, or call 209-333-5554.
