As stated in my previous entry, I enjoyed participating in the duties that this project allows. Very interactive and wonderful environment.
I enjoy participating with this East Austin Project. It provides a chance for volunteers to be interactive with a different part of the community and it allows the chance for the volunteers themselves to collaborate with one anoher and get to know each other. As always, I enjoy spending my time here.
As for my duty, I worked with another volunteer to read a letter from an incarcerated individual and scavenge the library to find a suitable piece of literature that we believe the person will enjoy. Afterward, we are given the chance to write a letter to the person.
Just as my other experiences, it is always an enjoyable to volunteer. Definitely will keep providing my services!
I have been taken this servicing event on few occasions and every time it is very enjoyable. The people and the other participants are very kind and its an overall unique experience every time. At the servicing event, I got the chance to answer letters that were delivered from a prison with books that the prisoners have been wanting. It is very nice because I am able to provide a form of entertainment to a group of people who are closed off.
As mentioned in my last reflection. Always a great volunteer project to be involved in. Although the library does lack a few resources (given it isn't a fully developed library), it is always fun to try to find pieces of literature that the inmate might enjoy.
I've volunteered in this project once before and it is as impacting and interesting as ever. This opportunity allowed me to send out letter to prison mates. In these letters, I packaged pieces of literature that may find an interest with. Overall, it is always a great event that allows the chance to expand myself of connection and communication.
Had the opportunity to provide prison inmates with books that they requested. I worked with my ULN friend searching the libraries to find certain books that the inmates requested in their letters. Overall, very awesome and would definitely do it again!
Worked with Patti from Fusebox. I was in charge of selling Fusebox merchandise for their show. I had a great time handling the sales. Patti's number: 512-786-5033.
