We rely on volunteers to get items back on the shelves, however other duties may arise depending on the time of year and work load. All volunteers are trained by a staff member and we do not accept court ordered community service. All volunteers must fill out an application and a background check is also required.
Adults (18 and older)
Currently, all of our adult volunteer slots are full and our waiting list is also full. Should this change, the application will be reposted to this page.
Please contact Cheryl with any additional questions.
Teens (ages 13-17)
Teen applications are different from the adult applications and they are posted on the teen page in April for summer volunteering opportunities and in August for slots during the school year. Unfortunately, because of the training time needed in order to volunteer, we do not have the ability to offer one-day or short term volunteer opportunities. All selected teen volunteers attend an orientation and training session provided by a staff member. Generally teens work one day a week for two hours during the school year and up to two days a week for two hours a day during the summer. One-hour shifts are also acceptable.
Please note that teen volunteer slots are limited and not guaranteed. We typically receive at least twice as many applications as we have spots available, so answering the short essay questions on the application thoughtfully is incredibly important.
