Volunteer Opportunities

The library loves and appreciates our community volunteers. However, due to COVID-19, to maintain the health and safety of our customers and staff within our library buildings, we have very limited opportunities. Some of our libraries are accepting new volunteers, and many others are working towards that by the end of the year.

Please check back for further opportunities or contact your local branch location.
