Library Volunteers

Reminder to all returning volunteers…  Please drop by the Library after collecting your timetable so that we may start to build this year’s Volunteer Schedule.

If you have not previously volunteered in the Library now is your chance to start.  We are looking for volunteers.  Last year we had a wonderful team of over 20 volunteers helping out in the Library on a regular basis.

If you are interested in joining us this year, please fill out the appropriate form (New or Returning).

We’ll be in touch shortly.

Cheers

The Toronto Fringe Festival is seeking dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers for our 2014 Festival!

Join us July 2nd-13th while we feature over 150 shows with local, national, and international artists. There will be new plays, old favourites and experimental works (including family-friendly shows in our FringeKids! series) of dance, drama, comedy and music. Our outdoor Fringe Club will feature the McAuslan Beer tent, buskers, bands, visual artists, Alley Plays, and Tent Talks – ALL FREE!

During the festival volunteers may sell and tear tickets, usher, help out with special events, and interact with festival-goers of every age and ilk. For each shift you’ll receive a stamp on your volunteer comp-card which you can use to see a show for free. You’ll also be able to attend volunteer appreciation shows, receive a Fringe t-shirt, get community service hours, and meet and talk to professionals working on the theatre scene!
