Q. Can I volunteer at the library?
You must be at least 15 years old to volunteer at any of the San José Public Library locations. Teens between the ages of 13-18 years old can sign up to join teensReach, our youth advisory council for the library.
To volunteer, simply browse all of our current opportunities by branch. Click on a particular volunteer opportunity that interests you. Once you click on the specific volunteer opportunity, you will be taken to a page where you can fill out an application on the right hand-side using our Volunteer Impact software. After you complete an application, a library staff member will contact you about the volunteering screening process.
