In-person Volunteer Opportunities!

Opportunities include... 

  • Assisting with activities and clubs!                            

  • Creating displays!                     

Shifts are during library hours. When you fill out your application, it is best if you can turn in your application at the branch you are planning to volunteer at, so you can hopefully get a chance to meet the volunteer liaison or teen services librarian. Once your application is processed, your schedule will be set up with the help of the volunteer liaison!
