The library does not have a formal volunteer program, but we appreciate those individuals who step forward and give their time and talents to the library throughout the year. In the summer, we do have an organized program of young volunteers helping with the Summer Reading Program.
People who wish to volunteer for general or specific tasks should fill out a Volunteer Application form online (below) or in one of the libraries. One of the Branch Library Supervisors will contact you.
We accept volunteers in the Community Sentencing program. Those arrangements are usually made through New River Community Corrections and Pre-trial Services.
We are sometimes able to provide internships or service learning experiences for students. For further information, contact Linda Spivey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers do not work with children or at a public service desk; they most often do clerical or collection maintenance tasks. Volunteers keep a timesheet and emergency contact information at the branch where they volunteer, and they wear a name tag identifying them as a library volunteer.
