AVS Library

The AVS Office has a library of over 300 books, videos and audio tapes on volunteer recruitment, volunteer management, service-learning, community service, corporate volunteering, usage of the Internet, fundraising, and other subjects of interest to affiliated agencies. Most of the books are in English, and all of the videos are in English, many with Arabic subtitles. There are a few important books on volunteering in the Arab World in Arabic.  In addition, the library has a small but expanding collection of materials on volunteerism in French from Volunteer Canada and the Centre National du Volontariat in Paris.

The library has archives of affiliated agencies in Lebanon (mostly in Arabic) - including brochures, invitations, posters, annual reports, and periodicals. Affiliated agencies are encouraged to send these materials to AVS on a regular basis so that their box is as complete a record of their organization as possible. The library also has a large collection of brochures, invitations, annual reports, and periodicals from similar agencies abroad (almost all in English) to serve as examples and to generate ideas for Lebanese agencies.

Affiliated agencies, students and anyone else interested in volunteerism and related subjects may use the library during AVS Office Hours. Library materials cannot be taken out of the library since, in most cases, they are the only copy in Lebanon. We will make copies of selected pages (not whole books) upon request - at the cost of making the copies. We also have catalogs of organizations and companies that sell the books that are in our library so that those who are interested can order their own copies directly from the vendor.
