Volunteers with Disabilities: ASCLA Tip Sheet Young people and adults with disabilities may be interested in volunteering at your library. The community as a whole benefits when the library team welcomes volunteers with disabilities. Individuals with disabilities have many of the same motivations as volunteers without disabilities: wanting to give back, build a resume, meet a community-service requirement for graduation or an organization, or just fill the hours in a day. However, be aware that people with disabilities do not necessarily have the same opportunities to volunteer because of intentional or unintentional community barriers. This tip sheet from ASCLA will be of some help. Capacity Building, Staff Training disabilities Training Materials
