The Library welcomes volunteers from the community and appreciates the vital role that volunteers provide for our Library. Whether you are volunteering to build your resume, gain work experience, or simply to serve the community, your time spent at the public library is greatly valued and is beneficial to our mission of serving the public. Please note - we do not accept volunteers who are completing court-ordered community service at this time.
All volunteers must go through the Volunteer United Headquarters and sign up for a volunteer shift. We will be developing new volunteer opportunities in the near future - the website will show what is available (with more details) at this time at the library.
