Just a few hours a week at the library can help enrich your neighbors and your community.
Here are just a few of the ways you can help:

  • Be the Library mascot
  • Assist with children's and adult programs
  • Teens can earn volunteer hours for school 
  • Help adults increase their literacy skills
  • Help children and teens with homework 
  • Assist Library customers with digital devices
  • Adopt-a-Shelf
  • Deliver books to homebound library users
  • Work with the Friends of the Library at the book stores, booksales and other fundraising efforts 
  • Teach a technology or other class
  • Perform local history research 

We have volunteer opportunities at all of our locations. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Cheri Noel at (760) 435-5564.

Volunteers in the library must be 14 years of age or older. Training will be provided.
