We usually schedule volunteers in one hour shifts once per week. However if you need a certain amount of hours by a certain date you can discuss it with the volunteer coordinator and they will work with you on that.
The main duty of our volunteers is usually shelving books that have been returned to the library. If you are unfamiliar with this process we do spend time training you on our system. We also have volunteers pull hold items, do some organizational things around the library, and check the shelves and displays.
If you are 18 and older the state of Pennsylvania also requires you submit a Criminal Record check and a PA Child Abuse History check along with your volunteer application.
- Adult Volunteer Application
- Request for Criminal Record Check – Volunteer Only
- PA Child Abuse History Check
Teens can fill out the online application and we’ll get back to you to schedule our initial sit-down and go over scheduling.
Continued hours are subject to mutual agreement between the volunteer and library staff after a training period.
Call or e-mail the library for more information!
