Volunteer: Cook Islands Libraries

2/21/14 – Cook Islands Libraries

Library and Museum: Volunteers are needed in several libraries to clean and straighten shelves, creating card catalogs, sorting donated books, and protecting and filing archival documents.

This volunteer opportunity is organized through Global Volunteers which organizes volunteer vacations.  FYI: there is a fee of $2,495 for  a 1-week stay, $2,685 for 2-weeks, and $2,895 for 3-weeks.

Sarah P’s comments:  paying to volunteer is a concept that is mildly disturbing but this organization is reputable and the fee covers all in- country expenses.  Plus I had friends who worked in the Cook Islands and raved about both the scenery and the friendly people.
