Volunteer at the Library


Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We are grateful for your desire to share your time and talents with the Library. Our volunteer opportunities continue to evolve and open up more while the Library resumes more pre-COVID-19 services. We are adjusting to changes with the pandemic in our volunteer program. We ask for your patience as we navigate these transitions. Please fill out a volunteer application as your first step. We look forward to welcoming you to our volunteer community at Monroe County Public Library. Learn more.
