Summer Reading Volunteering

Summer Reading logo

Do you want to inspire people to read this summer? Volunteer with the Summer Reading program! As a volunteer, you will help people sign up for the game, award prizes, talk with people about books, and more. Summer Reading volunteers do not read to kids, check out books to patrons, or shelve books. Learn more about Summer Reading volunteering.

All volunteers need to fill out an application, even if you have volunteered with us before. Volunteer shifts begin on June 16 and end on August 31.

Questions? Contact the Volunteer Services Office by email at or by phone at 503.988.5731 


How to apply: Fill out the Summer Reading Volunteer Application online or go to your local library for a paper application.
