Volunteering

We accept volunteers throughout the year and are happy to work with you to find a schedule and position for your volunteering hours that fits your and our needs.

We have a variety of ways that our volunteers help us, and we do our best to make sure that our volunteers are placed on tasks that they have an interest in.

Volunteers who complete at least 20 hours of service at the library in a calendar year do not have to pay late fees, except for DVDs and Wi-Fi Hotspots, in the following calendar year.

If you would like to volunteer at the library, please complete the Volunteer Application form. You can also come by the library to fill out a paper application if you prefer.

*Please understand that we have a limited number of volunteer spaces and they tend to fill quickly. If we do not have room in our volunteer schedule right now, we will contact you and let you know.
