Library Events & Programs - Birthday Party Helper

Enjoy a good party? We need your energy and enthusiasm to help us out!

Birthday party volunteers help our staff with activities, Storytime, crafts, room set-up, and break-down. Volunteers must be comfortable using a hot glue gun, scissors and a mini air compressor.

Staff will show you how to help and will be available during your shift for support.

Thank you for committing to help with a DCL Birthday Party! We depend on our volunteers to help make this event a success, so we are very grateful for your time.

We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes, and bring a water bottle and snack if you would like. 

Please Note: The Start/End Times for birthday parties are changing in 2024 - It will be a 12pm-5pm shift.  This shift may end after the library is closed for the day. Please be sure you have arranged transportation ahead of time, and have a way to communicate with your ride. 

If this is your first time volunteering for our branch, please e-mail Sonia Bates at to schedule a time for a brief orientation prior to this event.

Cancellation Policy: Please let us know right away if you need to cancel due to an emergency or illness. Due to the difficulty of securing last-minute volunteer help, Douglas County Libraries normally requests a minimum of 4 days notice if you are unable to attend. 

If you need to cancel, please do so at least 4 days in advance to allow us time to find another volunteer to fill this important spot.
