The Board of Trustees of Pierce County Library recognizes the need and value of volunteers as an available resource to further its goals in providing quality library service.
The Board believes that this collaborative effort can be beneficial to both the library and the individual volunteer. Benefits include fostering greater public interest in the library, encouraging personal growth for the volunteer, and enhancing, expanding, and upgrading library service.
The library will seek the support of volunteers and volunteers organizations, actively implement a responsible program of community partnership, and make greater use of volunteer expertise to supplement and support existing staff. It is not the intent of the library to replace regular employee positions with volunteers.
