Q. How do I get started as a volunteer?
To apply to be a library volunteer, review the opportunities and complete an online application.
Once you click on the specific volunteer opportunity that interests you, 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 within 1-2 weeks about the volunteering screening process.
