The Library loves volunteers!

Research has shown that volunteering is associated with improved health and well-being, including increased longevity, adoption of healthy lifestyles and reduction in depression and stress.


The service volunteers provide also goes on to benefit the communities in which they live and serve.

Flexible commitment! 


Volunteers can arrange library tasks at a mutually agreed upon time during normal hours.  The suggested time period is just an estimate to let you know how long something might take.  The times listed are not a required time commitment.
