Volunteer Jobs

We are lucky to have almost 40 dedicated volunteers who help keep the library running on a day-to-day basis. Jobs that our volunteers take on include:

  • Maintaining the book sale
  • Newspaper indexing
  • Data entry
  • Shelving
  • Unpacking new books and media
  • Processing new books
  • Mending damaged items
  • Processing discarded items
  • Assisting with library events

Special projects

Volunteers are also occasionally needed for one-time or short-term projects such as:

  • Compiling information packets
  • Landscape work
  • Moving projects
  • Spring cleaning

Recruitment

There are a limited number of volunteer opportunities available, but we do generally advertise for new volunteers about twice a year. Openings for volunteers (usually scheduled for 2 or more hours a week) are advertised on the lobby bulletin board, through our online News Flash, through our Facebook page, and in the local print media.
