Volunteers

Review our Volunteer Policy and Guidelines.

Thank you for expressing interest in working for the library on a voluntary basis.

Why does the library need volunteers?

Volunteers bring enthusiasm, energy, talent and a fresh perspective. They enhance, rather than replace, adequate staffing. They enrich the library's offerings, rather than provide basic service. Volunteer service helps the library to make the best use of its fiscal resources. Volunteers are liaisons to the community and by their contribution advocates for quality library service.

How do you become a volunteer?

Please download and fill out the teen application or adult application or pick up an application at the Information Desk. After your application has been reviewed, a staff member will call you. Please be aware that some volunteer positions require a fixed schedule, while others may be more flexible.

Any volunteer under 16 years of age will be considered a "student intern" and must submit a Student Intern Parental Consent form.

For security reasons, the library cannot accommodate court-referred volunteers.

Become a Friend of the Library

The Friends of the Library is a group of library enthusiasts who work together to promote and expand the library's services to the community. The Friends provide support for the library through membership fees, fund-raising events such as our Annual Friends Book Sale, and other special projects, such as staffing movie showings. If you are not yet ready for the commitment of time and energy which might be necessary for a library volunteer, you might prefer to serve as an active member of the Friends of the Library.
