What the heck is a Docent, and why do you really want to be one?
They teach one-on-one lessons to customers who need help with topics like email, internet searching, word processing and job seeking, as well as downloading music and even advanced topics like designing websites. They also work the help desk with staff, answering phones and customer questions with intelligence, courtesy and a healthy sense of humor. Some docents even teach classes. After hours brings the notorious CTC Happy Hour where docents and staff get together at a place with food and drink a’plenty to get to know each other more, laugh about crazy experiences while helping people, and find community with like-minded folk. Friendships blossom @the CTC. Docenting with us is one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences you could wish for- plus it looks great on a resume! ;)
And you’re in luck because we need more docents! You don’t have to be a total techie to docent with us. If you are a competent computer user who likes to work with people and gets a kick out of helping those in need, join our team! And if you do have special tech skills, all the better.
You can always learn more about the CTC by visiting us on the 4th floor of the Central library, calling us at 720-865-1706 or checking out denverlibrary.org/ctc
