Volunteering at the Library is a fun, easy way for local residents to give back. We always welcome adults and youth to come in and lend a hand, earn community service hours, or just spend time serving fellow patrons.
Teen and Adult Volunteer Program
(Ages 15 and up)
The Library is always looking for an extra set of hands to help shelve books, assist with programs and more. If you’re looking for service hours — or just generally love the Library environment — we could use your help! Fill out and submit your volunteer application here.
