Be a Volunteer

Adult and teen volunteers apply below

From sorting books to getting crafts ready for storytime, tasks tackled by our volunteers help to further the mission of the library. Help is needed with all kinds of jobs, some simple and some more technical.

Opportunities include:

  • Regular library tasks, like helping prepare for programs and dusting shelves (no one needs a dusty library)
  • Registering our community for the Summer Learning Challenge
  • Helping prepare and host special events, like Maker Day and Ghouls & Golf
  • Walking in local parades (yes, you get to throw candy!)

The library happily accepts teen volunteers in 7th–12th Grade and adult volunteers. During the summer, teens going into 7th Grade can start volunteering! Court-ordered community service is not accepted.
