Duties are assigned at the start of each shift based on current need. Volunteers will be provided training on duties, but must be able to work independently.
Teen volunteers should be between the ages of 16 and above, and demonstrate appreciation for the library, attention to detail, dependability, and a friendly and helpful attitude.

Volunteer Duties:

  • Shelf Maintenance - Volunteers make their way through a section of shelves, checking to make sure that books are in the right order based on the Dewey Decimal System and that they are neat and straight. Any books that are found to be in the wrong place are re-shelved in the appropriate location. Light dusting may be required.
  • Searching for Missing Items- Volunteers search the library’s shelves for items that have come up "missing" and provide updates on which items can and cannot be found. This helps librarians determine whether or not to order a replacement copy of the item.
  • Processing Withdrawn Items- Old, damaged or outdated items are regularly withdrawn from the library’s collection to make space for new materials. Volunteers assist in this process by preparing items for sale in the Friends book sale or by recycling the materials.
