Volunteering at NLB

Postby medontknowwhattosay » Sat Feb 01, 2014 4:21 pm

Hi. I am Sec 2, and idk if y'all parents know, but we have this LEAPS programme in which we must fulfill our CIP hours, and me being me (KIASU), I want to finish ASAP. I'm thinking of volunteering at the library, but I'm not the most sociable, especially with older teens. Has any of your DD/DS volunteered there before, and how was the experience?
Thanks. :)

I've volunteered there before myself quite some time ago. Trust me, you're pretty much on your own most of the time if you signed up to arrange books. It can get pretty boring at times so I sort of gave myself challenges like arranging the books faster etc. Haha. If you're not comfortable with socialising, you can grab a friend along with you when you volunteer. And then slowly start making new friends and enjoy volunteering!

Thanks! However, I've decided that maybe I should volunteer somewhere else that is more suited to my surroundings. For e.g, Befriending one-on-one.

Go to https://vms.nlb.gov.sg/MainServlet :)
Heard that It is really quite boring at times but sometimes you can smuggle in some homework to do depending on what you are volunteering for :)
Hope you have a fun time there!
