A Great Story Needs Great Characters:
Volunteer at your public library and discover your power to make a difference
The Library owes a debt of gratitude to the many volunteers who have come forth in recent years to help us provide a steady level of service. We have seen clearly how volunteer support is essential to sustain operational effectiveness and the impact of this very committed force of library stakeholders.
Last year we engaged more than 1029 trained and dedicated volunteers who supported us by donating 59,290 hours of time and talents! The caring power of our volunteers improves lives by making our libraries better. Volunteers contribute by shelving books, processing holds, leading computer classes, taking books to home bound individuals, assisting students with homework, preparing Spanish story telling sessions – all of which ultimately builds our capacity to create a more educated and literate community.
We invite you to make a difference by sharing your skills and experiences. We would like to direct you toward our most common needs which are the volunteer opportunities you see posted below. However, if you have unique skill sets please complete the General Online Application. We will try to find a match for you.
If you need more information or haven’t heard from staff within five days of submitting your application, please call the Library’s Volunteer Coordinator at (704) 416-0711 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Branch needs vary so volunteer opportunities at specific branches may fluctuate depending on seasonal factors affecting recruitment; if you do not see your desired location listed as an option for a 1st or 2nd choice, please select another location and/or check back at a later date. Free parking is available at Main Library.
If you are applying online, please print your application before you submit it. In some cases firewalls prevent some applications from coming through. You may drop off a hard copy at your library of choice.
