COVID-19 Update

VO is implementing a plan focused on recruitment and deployment of volunteers to respond to the volunteer needs specific to COVID-19. As part of that plan we will be working with Ottawa Public Health and other agencies to ensure proper screening and training protocals to safeguard the health of those volunteering and those they are assisting. Within the next week, volunteers will be able to register for COVID-19 specific volunteering, including virtual volunteering, food delivery and transportation, and agencies will be able to post and/or send VO their COVID-19 specific needs for volunteer matching. In the interim, Agencies can view resources and additional information on our Members COVID-19 Update and volunteer resources are available at our COVID-19 Volunteer Update.

Join our Board of Directors:
Do you have time and expertise to dedicate, but haven’t quite found the right volunteer fit? Then let us introduce ourselves. We’re the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association, or FOPLA.

We’re a volunteer-run organization that supports the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) through fundraising and advocacy. We sell used books and more in library branches across Ottawa and donate the proceeds to the Ottawa Public Library to enhance their programs and services. We’ve donated more than $4 million dollars to OPL since 2003. Amazing, right?

Why should you join our Board?
Our Board is made up of dedicated people who believe the Ottawa Public Library provides a crucial service to our community. As a governing Board, our members guide operational and policy decisions, provide expertise to staff and volunteers, and identify strategic resources to power our success as a registered Canadian charity.

How can you help us?
Ottawa’s library system will change in a spectacular way with the construction of the Ottawa Central Library in 2024, and we hope to grow with it. We’re looking for new Board members with skills in these areas:

• Governance
• Retail Management
• Policy Development
• Facilities and Logistics
• Volunteer Coordination

All the other stuff you need to know:

• Commitment: Our Board members are elected to two-year terms.
• Hours: Between 10-15 hours per month. Our Board activities take place on evenings and weekends, though there may be occasional daytime activities depending on availability.
• Meetings: The fourth Wednesday of every month from 6:30-8:30PM at a branch of the Ottawa Public Library.
• Governance: We are a fully incorporated, registered Canadian charity. We carry Director’s Liability Insurance at all times.
• Language: Proficiency in English is required, and any other languages are welcomed.
• Financial: Board members are required to be a Member of FOPLA in good standing. Membership costs $25 per year, $45 for a two-year membership, or $250 for a lifetime membership.
• Age: Board members must be at least 18 years of age.
• Communication: Board members must have access to email for FOPLA communications.

Still interested? Then apply now! Or feel free to contact us at 613-580-2424 x14383 or info@fopla-aabpo.ca.
