About our volunteer opportunities:

  • Though our volunteer opportunities are unpaid, they can be a great way to gain experience and learn about libraries, especially if you are considering pursuing the MLS or MLIS. Volunteering at our library is a great way to get involved with the community and make new friends, too!  
  • Our Library managers train our volunteers as they would paid staff.  We expect our volunteers to meet certain standards in order to provide effective library services.  We invest time, training, and supervision into our volunteers.  It is for this reason we can only offer a finite number of opportunities at any given time.  
  • If you discover we do not have a particular opportunity available, please do check back with us at a later date.  We frequently have need of volunteers and will post opportunities as they come available.
  • Please give us at least one week to consider your application, unless otherwise noted.
  • You may be asked to visit our location to speak with one of our managers and/or present samples of your work, depending on the volunteer opportunity and as part of the consideration process.
  • There may be additional paperwork to complete once you begin volunteering, including providing emergency contacts.
