Our volunteers fall into three categories:


1. Volunteering as a teen

2. Volunteering at the library (adults)

If you are an adult and are interested in shelving, helping with arts and crafts, making cool buttons or helping us do a hunt for books placed on hold, fill out an adult application.

3. Volunteering with Friends of the Library (all ages)
