Griffin Free Public Library – Auburn, NH

Where Auburn Comes Together!

Auburn’s Virtual Volunteer Fair – You Are Needed!

Volunteering is one of the most meaningful expressions of giving and agencies serving Auburn residents need your help. Thanks to the support of AARP, Southern NH Planning Commission has partnered with the CareGivers’ Volunteer Driver Program, and Auburn’s innovative Griffin Free Library to put on an informative and exciting Virtual Volunteer Fair

Helping connect seniors to their community is one of the most meaningful things you can do for older adults who might otherwise become socially and physically isolated. CareGiver’s Volunteer Driver Program (VDP) provides training for volunteers to safely provide rides to seniors so they can get to critical medical appointments. The Griffin Free Public Library Homebound Program is designed to help people who cannot get to or use the library due to long-term injury, physical disability, or transportation issues (including inability to drive in winter weather).  Both of these programs are looking for volunteer drivers, one to deliver and pick up seniors and the other to deliver books.

Looking for a rewarding way to give back to your community? Please join our Virtual Volunteer Fair through Zoom and learn about the CareGivers’ VDP and the library’s Homebound Program. The program takes place on December 16th, 4:00 to 5:30 pm: Find out from agency directors about training, volunteer needs, safety precautions and other details. Plus, everyday heroes who are volunteering now will share their stories on how these programs mean so much to seniors in Auburn. 

To participate,  register here:

The first 10 participants will receive a free pen from the library.  First three to sign up to either program will receive a free SNHPC coffee mug.

  • Kathy Growney, Library Director, call: 483-5374 or email: director@griffinfree.org.
