Virtual Volunteering

Ventura County Library offers volunteer opportunities for students needing school community service credit and youth who want to help the library in a virtual environment. 

What is Virtual Volunteering? Virtual student volunteers work on their assignments online at home or school.

Examples of virtual volunteer assignments:

  • Write brief book reviews.
  • Research and recommend books for the library to purchase.
  • Create suggested reading lists using books from the library's collection.
  • Find missing volumes (gaps) in library book series.
  • Research and recommend websites for our  Teens Boredom Busters web page. 
  • Research and recommend websites for our  Steam Resources web page.
  • Contribute to the success of the library's Minecraft servers.
  • Contribute to the success of our library STEAM & Makerspace activities.
  • Develop Summer Reading Challenge activity ideas.

To begin the volunteer application process, go to our Reading Challenge platform to create an account and sign-up for two challenges:

  1. The Summer Reading Challenge - Reading Colors Your World
  2. The Summer Virtual Volunteer Challenge. 

The Summer Virtual Volunteer Challenge has activities to get you started and vetted as a volunteer. The first step is to register for the Reading Challenge and then complete the Summer Virtual Volunteer Activity.
