Volunteering at Your Library

As a library volunteer, you’ll be helping to provide everyone in our community with life-enriching experiences. Hundreds of volunteers play an important part in the success of this busy, popular library. Volunteering for the library can be very rewarding. You’ll benefit by:

  • Working in a friendly environment
  • Meeting new and interesting people
  • Achieving a feeling of accomplishment
  • Learning about the library and all its resources
  • Gaining new skills

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. If you are 16 or 17, you’ll need a signed waiver from a parent or guardian.
