Can I fulfill my community service requirements at the library?
The library accepts volunteers who are fulfilling court-ordered or school community service requirements as long as they pass the required background check and there is a suitable opportunity at their desired location. Please be aware that volunteer placement generally takes two to three weeks and that most volunteers serve an average of two hours per week. In addition, availability of volunteer opportunities varies seasonally and by location. The library may not be able to provide enough hours to individuals who need a large number of hours or have a pressing deadline for completing their service.
I don’t have an email address, but I am interested in volunteering. How can I participate in your program?
Visit your local library. Library staff will be happy to assist you with registering for an email address at one of our public internet stations. Once you have an email address, you will be eligible to apply to become a volunteer.
May I submit my application now so you can keep my information on file for future opportunities?
The library only accepts volunteer applications when we have specific opportunities available. That’s why the first step in our process is contacting your local library. If there’s not something available at this time, you’re welcome to check back with us in three to six months to see if something has opened up.
