Volunteers help the library in a variety of ways and are an integral part of providing quality library service to the public. As a volunteer you will gain skills and knowledge that can help you in your career or your personal life. Students and others can gain community service credit while helping connect the community to books and learning.
Anyone 14 years old or older can volunteer at the library. We have many different tasks and welcome volunteers with a variety of different skills, interests, and abilities. Volunteers will need to pass a background check.
Here are few examples of volunteer opportunities:
Search the library for inventory lists of library materials to be pulled, help return materials to library shelves, or help sort incoming deliveries or donations.
Assist patrons in a one-on-one setting on the use of computers and other technology.
Library Storytime Aide

Promotes and advocates for the library in the community.
