This application is for individuals ages 18 and over.
Thank you for completing a Library volunteer application! After your application is processed, you will be contacted for an interview with the Volunteer Coordinator. After your interview, adult volunteers are required to complete a background check through the City Police Department. Since, there are a limited number of slots for each volunteer shift or role, it may take a little while to find the perfect volunteer fit for you and the Library.
