FAQs: Volunteer Opportunities

Teen volunteers are accepted 3 times a year during volunteer orientations in January, May, September. Spots are limited to around 10 volunteers a semester. Volunteer applications are available prior to orientation and not accepted at other times. Teens will work 1 hour a week. Teens must be 13-18 to volunteer. Applications can only be picked up at the children's desk. Teens must be self starters and responsible independent workers capable of following directions.

Some of the tasks our adult volunteers help with include shelving and straightening shelves, prepping materials for adult programs, and pulling books for homebound patrons. Applications are accepted at anytime. To apply, please complete this form.

Adults who are interested in volunteering may also learn more information about becoming a Friend of the Library and volunteering with the Used Book Sale room. Visit the Friends of the Library page to learn more.

We allow workers to come for four-hour blocks and perform light housekeeping duties such as picking up trash from the parking lot, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning windows, sanitizing tabletops, etc. We only take one worker at a time, according to the schedule below, and work times must be booked in advance.
