Do you have the desire to volunteer but struggle with being able to make a regular commitment? Are you excited to get involved but worried about making a weekly obligation?

Look no further - the Cedar Rapids Public Library has the perfect opportunity for you!

Join our on-call Library Volunteer Corps and be eligible to help at special programs and events. The Corps go through the regular volunteer process, but are contacted on an as-needed basis for events such as children craft programs, teen cooking events, adult speaker series, summer reading programs, and special community events.

Once you are registered, you'll be contacted as needed to help out at special library events. Many of these programs take place during the evening or on weekends. You can say "YES" as often as you like...but know that saying "no" is also an option! This is about getting involved at a pace that is right for you!

For more information about this flexible volunteer opportunity, please contact Jessica Link at linkj@crlibrary.org or at 319-739-0403.

About Cedar Rapids Public Library

Mission Statement

The Cedar Rapids Public Library is a passionate advocate for literacy and lifelong learning.

The Library exists to impact our community and transform its quality of life through education, civic engagement, the arts, and entertainment.


Walk into the Cedar Rapids Public Library and you’ll discover a diverse community. Designed for readers and learners of all ages and from all backgrounds, we are the community’s living room - a place to connect, unwind, share ideas, and explore new possibilities.

Working alongside our staff, volunteers transform a building of "stuff" into a dynamic place to dream, do, and discover. Whether you are caring for materials, guiding tours, or reading with children, you are constantly renovating our living room to make it a little bit bigger and better than it was yesterday. You give us space to grow and welcome in new ideas, people, and opportunities.

So, open the door to your next great opportunity! We’ve saved a seat on the couch for you.
