It is a goal of the Swan’s Island Educational Society to provide an enjoyable, beneficial experience for our community member volunteers. SIES is committed to the idea that involving volunteers in its operations is an important factor in carrying out this mission for the community.
Therefore, we believe that:
-volunteers enable the Swan’s Island Educational Society to provide a greater variety of services to the community and expand upon the services that are already in place;
-volunteers provide a vital link between SIES and the community, informing the community about the services that the library and historical society have to offer;
-volunteers bring valuable community input into our planning process;
-volunteers work closely with staff as partners to improve the quality of SIES services and to help facilitate a positive working environment for everyone involved with the library and the historical society;
-a volunteer program provides community members of all ages and abilities a constructive and rewarding opportunity to serve the community and SIES.
