Volunteer at the Library

Volunteer at the Library!

Would you like to volunteer?
Can you answer "Yes!" to the following questions?

  • Are you 12 or older?
  • Can you commit to volunteer once a week?
  • Do you have good customer skills?
  • Would you like to share your love of reading?
  • Can you provide a letter of recommendation from a non-relative such as a teacher, employer, group leader, or pastor?

When you apply, please note the following:

  • We assign each volunteer one shift at the same time and day each week. 
  • We cannot guarantee that you will be given your first choice of shifts, but we will work with you, giving preference to returning volunteers.
  • If all time slots are filled, let us know if you would like to be on the waiting list.
  • Letters of recommendation must be received before or at the volunteer orientation. 
  • Applicants will be required to attend a volunteer orientation. A parent or guardian must be present for minors.
  • **Please note: Any court mandated community service must be approved by the Chelsea Public Library Board.
