Library volunteers are an integral part in the Library's mission in creating a center of community and world information. Volunteers are welcome to assist staff at all locations and in many areas. Take this rewarding opportunity to support children and teen learning, assisting patrons with a number of tasks, clerical work, improving our technology outreach, and enjoying summer reading fun.
