What Volunteers Do

Help is needed with all  kinds of tasks, some simple and some more technical, some helping the public and some behind the scenes.

Volunteers can be found in most of the library's departments, at both the Main Library and Douglass Branch.  Opportunities include: 

  • working with customers, from children to seniors, at special events
  • helping computer users at the library
  • working with library staff behind the scenes
  • helping keep our materials and our buildings in good shape
  • working with books, DVDS, and other library materials

If you think you are interested in volunteering, please check the available listings.

The CU Volunteer website lists all of our current volunteer needs. Select "Opportunities", "Advanced Search" and choose "Champaign Public Library"

When volunteers work

We'll work with you to schedule your volunteering at a time that's convenient for you. In general, you'll volunteer sometimes during the library's open hours.
