    Volunteer opportunities

    Library Society Ambassador

    The UTSC Library is looking for student volunteers to be Library Society Ambassadors this summer. 

    This is an opportunity to be involved with your library and have fun doing it! You can influence and improve the library and campus experience for current and future students. Plus, you can build your co-curricular record.

    Here is what some Ambassadors had to say about their experience last year:

    Being a library ambassador was a blast -- I got the chance to meet some really fun people and have made friendships that will last a lifetime. Planning and helping out with events got me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to develop my leadershop and teamwork skills a lot more. Being part of the "Ask Scarby" team was such a unique experience and is definitely one of the greatest highlights of my university career!

    Being a library society ambassador, it is never just something I can put on the resume and CCR records. I was able to learn a lot of interpersonal skills which benefits me the most. Plus, we have many cool members and great ideas.
