Volunteers help in many facets of operations such as sorting, shelving, assisting with programs, and cleaning. Volunteers do not serve in ways that would jeopardize customer confidentiality and the customer’s right to privacy. Volunteers are not able to present story times or read aloud in the Youth Services Department. Due to the lengthy orientation and training process, volunteers should be prepared to commit to a minimum of two hours per week for at least six months.
To apply, submit online or print an application and drop it off at one of the library branches or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. All successful applicants will be asked to submit to a background check run by the City of Alexandria.
