After the sad news of Volunteer Tulsa's dissolution, potential volunteers, and organizations in need of volunteers, do still have some resources for finding each other. Volunteer Match is a national database with fun and friendly searches, dozens of interest categories, mapping functions, and virtual volunteer opportunites as well.

Everyone in the Literacy Office is pleased to wish our volunteer Alice Bates happy 90th birthday! Alice is a dedicated volunteer who we can always rely on to help us prepare materials for the Literacy, Outreach, and Youth Services offices. Congratulations, Alice, and thanks for all your help!
Grief is a subject that we tend to avoid. It is experienced uniquely and carried alone despite its universality. Grieving people are reminders of what tiny, fragile creatures we are. For many, reading offers some consolation. Personally, I’ve found peace from reading favorite poets like Wendell Berry and Mary Oliver. For others, religious texts may comfort.
