About the SPLAT Volunteer Team
SPLAT, which stands for the Shrewsbury Public Library Advisory Team, is the most fun way in town to meet new people, learn and develop leadership skills, and earn volunteer hours. Through material selection, fundraising, event planning, and a variety of other tasks both recreational and educational, participants enrich their lives while having a blast! Currently, there are over 450 people who get the weekly events list, and meetings range from small groups of a few people to special occasions with standing room only. There is truly a place for everyone in SPLAT.
