Volunteer at the Library

Do you like to be productive and have fun at the same time? Help make your library even better by volunteering.

During the school year, volunteers work two hours a week for four weeks. During the fifth week, volunteers are rewarded with a party for all their hard work. Over the summer, after completing an orientation, volunteers are assigned specific times to come in to work. At the end of the summer, volunteers are invited to attend a pizza part as a thank you.

Both types of volunteers need to complete the Middle School Volunteer Application form below.
