How to Become a Volunteer

If you would like to volunteer at the library, whether by working at the front desk, helping out in the Children’s Room, or even just shelving books, please print and fill out this Volunteer Application and bring it to the staff office of the library. While we do not have the staff time to accept and train all applicants, your application will be kept on file for future need. Thank you in advance for your interest!
