Volunteering at APL

The library welcomes volunteer help! We have a wide variety of opportunities available. Many offer flexible hours and tasks to suit specific interests. Volunteers may help with children’s programs, take materials to patrons unable to get to the library, harvest information from obituaries for the local history project, return books and media back to the shelves and more.

We are able to do a huge volume of business and maintain a high level of service because of the 4000+ hours of time our volunteers give annually. Join this dedicated group of people today!
