As we get ready to start a new semester, SCALA would like to take a moment to recognize all the students who served their communities in 2016.  From volunteering at local libraries to showing new students around campus, SCALA students are leaders both at school and in their everyday lives.  We are proud to record 139 hours and 15 minutes of service in 2016!

Volunteering is also a great way to get practical experience in the library field, especially if you don’t currently have a library job.  It shows a great attitude and gives you familiarity with the day-to-day experiences of the library.  Learn more about volunteering by visiting our Resources for Volunteers page.

Thank you for your dedication not just to your communities, but also to SCALA. Your service helps our organization maintain recognition and receiving funding so we can send you to conferences, workshops and more!
