:: Volunteer at your library

The Main Library and all branch libraries have an urgent need for volunteers!

If you can serve a few hours each week in your local branch or the Main Library Main, your contribution will help maintain library operations. Library volunteer service offers a social experience, exercise, and a valuable chance to contribute!

There are many volunteer opportunities at the Main library, the branches and for our outreach programs. Visit our Literacy Tutor page for more information about becoming an Adult Literacy tutor.

If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Nancy Walker or the appropriate branch or department listed below.
