Turn a Corner relies on the support of a helpful and friendly team of volunteers.
We also welcome donations of books and other helpful items for the people affected by homelessness who visit our mobile community space.
Turn a Corner offers books and a space for conversation for people affected by homelessness. Turn a Corner also acts as a place to listen directly to people who are homeless about what their current needs are and pilot creative responses to these needs, in collaboration with the library’s readers and volunteers. This is in line with our mission, enabling people to seek solutions to the issues affecting their lives.
We have the following volunteering opportunities at Turn a Corner:
