We really count on our volunteers. They perform jobs and tasks that are vital to the everyday operation of the library. Most positions require a commitment of 1-2 hours per week; though volunteers may choose to work longer hours. Here are a few examples of volunteer opportunities in the library…

  • Return movies and books to the shelves and straighten them.
  • Process new materials by covering and stamping them.
  • Package and prepare interlibrary loan (ILL) items for mailing.

How to Apply

Please complete a “Request to Volunteer” application form and background check form and return them both to the library. You will be notified only if a volunteer position becomes available.

High school students, please check the silver cord website for library volunteer opportunities that will count toward the silver cord program.
