Volunteer Opportunities

Want to join the growing number of library volunteers? There are a variety of ways you can contribute. Volunteers help with special events, provide clerical help, and do a variety of miscellaneous jobs on an as needed basis.


  • YOU can be a volunteer by contacting one of the library staff. 
  • Some of the volunteer opportunities may be performed from your home, others from within the library.

    - shelve books
    - prepare craft items for children's programs
