Columbus Metropolitan Library

Columbus Metropolitan Library's Main Library
Come volunteer with us at Columbus Metropolitan Library's Main Library.

Columbus Metropolitan Library is dedicated to serve our community--especially our children. Our Young Minds program is dedicated to:

  • Prepare children for Kindergarten
  • Assist them with reading skills and
  • Provide them with the resources they need to successfully complete their homework
Key to our success is our dedicated team of volunteers. Because of the COVID-19 virus we are not seeking volunteers today, but we hope that soon we will be able to open our doors to children who need help from all of us: our staff and our wonderful team of volunteers.

If you would like to join this team, please consider waiting until we know it is safe to bring everyone together again to share our love of learning. While we welcome hearing from you, volunteer positions will not be available until it's safe to work without social distancing and masks.
