Volunteers help attain the mission of lifelong learning by teaching computer classes, delivering library materials to homebound individuals, mending materials and many other essential jobs. We accept volunteers ages 14 and up. To learn more about volunteer openings for adults at the Library, please contact our adult services librarian, Beth Swartzbaugh, via email or at 253-841-5454.
If you wish to apply and you are 18 years or older, please fill out a volunteer application form available at the main desk of the library or download an application and mail it to the Library. For teens ages 14 - 17, please download and complete the Teen Volunteer Application and return it to the Library.
Adults over the age of 17 will be required to complete a Washington State Patrol background check which will require a signature and a copy of your current identification. Once we have received your application, we will contact you as soon as it has been processed.
Please be aware that the Library cannot fulfill court-ordered community service hours.
Are you looking to complete those school-required volunteer hours? There are multiple ways teens can volunteer with us including the teen advisory group, creating displays or assisting with programs for teens, children, or adults.
Teens can also volunteer to help on a weekly basis at the Library, as space allows. These volunteers will learn some basic procedures and tasks associated with the Library's day-to-day operations.
For more information about opportunities for teens, please contact Bonnie via email or by calling 253-841-5454.
"Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark.... In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed." - Germaine Greer
