REACH Volunteer Opportunities - Library Service Volunteer

Library Service volunteers assist with the general upkeep and maintenance of the library. Such volunteers may do a variety of behind-the-scenes tasks such as shelving, cleaning, or assisting staff with projects.

The length, frequency, and duration of the volunteering are flexible. However, volunteers are usually expected to commit to at least one two-hour shift per week and to volunteer for at least three months.
