The only volunteer opportunities the Library is currently offering are adult literacy tutors and Friends of the Library volunteers.  All other volunteer applications and orientations have been suspended at this time.  Please check back for updated information.   


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.
