Volunteer & Employee Requirements

Most positions require criminal background and child abuse fingerprint background checks. Many positions have additional requirements that depend on type of service and location of service. Please see individual descriptions for more information.

Ways to Get Involved

  • Returning Books (shelving/retrieval)
    • Volunteer with us and find books people have requested. This position may also re-shelve books people have returned. Keeping our books on the shelves is a vital part of them being available for people to borrow! Get more information about volunteering.
  • Fingerprinting
    • Many people need to be fingerprinted to do work in a school, get their position in the nursing field, or become a foster parent. You could help them cross this requirement off their list, so they can be one step closer to achieving their goals. Please check current opportunities for service for more information.
  • Coffee
    • Do you love people? Do you love coffee and tea? You could be a perfect fit as part of our World Café team. This team connects with the public, crafts specialty beverages, and helps fulfill the big vision of the World Café program. Check out our current opportunities for service.
  • Book Sorting
    • Learn how to qualify books and other items for the Friends of the Library bookstore, book sale or one of our online resellers. Join this volunteer band of Library supporters to sort, process and resell donated materials to support Library operations and make new Friends!
  • Board Service
