Are you interested in volunteering at the Library?

There are many different ways you can help. Our library is very proud of its talented and diverse group of volunteers. With the guidance and support of Library staff, volunteers can donate their time, extending the reach of the Library and getting the community involved in reaching library goals. The library relies on volunteers and we try to involve volunteers in meaningful and interesting work.

Volunteering

Please note the following:

  • Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.
  • Due to Pennsylvania law, volunteers must complete a number of background checks prior to starting service. Completion of these background checks can take as long as 6 weeks. The volunteer must pay for a portion of the cost of these checks.
  • Volunteers must also undergo training prior to starting service.
