Volunteer at the Library
Click on a photo below to read about just a few of our Lighthouse Point Library volunteers...
In the last fiscal year, over 100 individuals between the ages of 13 and 95 volunteered over 10,000 hours at the Lighthouse Point Library!
A volunteer is a person who performs tasks for the Lighthouse Point Library without wages, benefits, or compensation of any kind. Our volunteers include retirees, local business leaders, and students earning community service hours toward graduation (just to name a few). By supporting the paid staff, volunteers participate in multiple facets of the library including: Circulation Desk Assistance – Teaching Senior Programs – Youth Foreign Language Tutoring – Shelving Materials – Coordinating Youth Programming – Book Sale Management – Technology Tutoring – Shelf Reading – Website Support - Help at City Events – Special Projects - And Serving on Library Boards (Teen, Advisory, or Friends).
As a small token of our enormous thanks, each spring the library host an annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon (est. 1979) at which time the hard work and dedication of each volunteer is formally acknowledged by the library director, staff, and members of the City administration.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please call the Lighthouse Point Library for more information. Please note we are not able to participate in any court ordered or adjudicated volunteer programs.
