The Doreen Gauthier Lighthouse Point Library

Become a Volunteer

In fiscal year 2022-2023, over 60 individuals between the ages of 13 and 95 volunteered over 2.900 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, university interns, and students earning community service hours toward graduation. By supporting the paid Library staff, volunteers participate in multiple facets of the Library including: Operating the circulation desk, instructing adult programs, shelving materials, assisting in youth programs, shelf reading, sorting book donations, serving on Library Boards, and managing the book sale.The first step to join the Library’s volunteer team is filling out an online application. After your application is processed, you will be contacted for an interview with the Volunteer Coordinator (adults and university interns) or Youth Services Librarian (teens). At the time of their interview, teen volunteers are required to have a print copy of their application signed by their parents. After their interview, adult volunteers and university interns 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 both you and the Library.

Each of the following tabs will open to a page with an online form to apply as a volunteer.

Make sure you have your Library Card number handy.  Reminder, the Library is not able to participate in any court ordered or adjudicated volunteer programs.
