Volunteers Give the Priceless Gift of Time!

We Can’t Do It Without You!

Make a difference and Volunteer!

Volunteers enhance the services the library system provides to the community.  By working together, volunteers and library staff can accomplish great things! Find your passion, your interest, and volunteer doing something that you love. You’ll be helping with changing lives, and you’ll be helping both our Library and our great community. There are many opportunities to volunteer your time.

Just a little or a whole lot are both appreciated!

Volunteer Experience


The Director is authorized by the board to accept volunteers by the same criteria as paid staff.

Volunteers will be interviewed and if accepted be assigned to the most appropriate job/task for their particular skills or interests. Volunteers will be expected to adhere to the same standards of conduct, ethics, and commitment to the job as paid staff. Volunteers will not be accepted if there is no suitable job match when skills, interest, location, and schedule are considered. If there is not a job available, the volunteer will be informed that their application will be kept on file for 1 year and they will be contacted when there is an opening.

Volunteers will be asked to fill out an application form provided by the library. Volunteers must be age 13 or older; those under age 18 must have written permission from a parent or guardian to volunteer for the library.

The library will ask for a background check of all volunteers 18 and older. The form authorizing this check should be signed by the volunteer and returned to the Director. Background checks are paid by the volunteer. Volunteering will be contingent on a satisfactory background check. Background checks will be place in the volunteer’s file.

Volunteers will not take the place of paid staff and will provide special, unusual, or supplemental services and will be recruited for specific jobs rather than on a general basis.

All volunteers will be given a brief orientation by the Director. Such orientation shall include expectations of all staff, whether paid or unpaid, in matters of customer service, confidentiality of patron records, and basic rules and regulations of the library.

Volunteers will work under an at-will status and may be discharged with or without cause or notice.
