- 2-hour shift each week
- 3 month commitment
- Friends & Foundation (LPLFF) Volunteers
- Unlimited positions
- Flexible schedule
- 7th-12th graders
- 1-hour shelving shift each week
- Semester-long commitment
Step 1: Fill out an application
Our Library Department and LPLFF application can be found here.

Step 2: Attend the New Volunteer Orientation
In orientation, you will learn about all the ways you can support the library as a volunteer. (1 hour)
Step 3: Volunteer Interview
After orientation, we’ll schedule a short interview to get you matched with a department. (15 mins)
Step 4: Attend a training shift
Come in for your first volunteer session with a mentor who will train you and answer any of your questions. (1.5 hours)
