Volunteering at the Library

The library welcomes volunteer help. We have a wide variety of opportunities available. Many offer flexible hours and tasks to suit specific interests. Some of the opportunities include adopting a shelf or section, shelving books, assisting with programs, greeting patrons, and delivering books to homebound patrons. We are able to do a huge volume of business and maintain a high level of service because of the 8000+ hours of time our volunteers give annually. Join this dedicated group of people today!
