Students must sign up at least 24 hours in advance. You can sign up by filling out a form at the Check-Out & Reserves Desk, or by emailing circhelp@oswego.edu. (We will not accept signups over the phone.)

Many library activities require volunteers to be physically able to perform such tasks as lifting large books, or sitting or standing for at least an hour. Please let us know if you're interested in volunteering but need accommodations.
