Volunteer at Siuslaw Public Library

Volunteers are vital to the success of the library! From shelving books to outreach at local retirement homes, volunteers provide important services that keep our library running.

How do I become a volunteer?

First, fill out and return our volunteer application. Download it here, or stop by to pick one up at the circulation desk. Email your completed application to erin@siuslawlibrary.org or bring it by the library. We'll schedule an interview with you to discuss your interests and current opportunities.

What are the expectations for volunteers?

Take a look at our Volunteer Code of Ethics and Behavior.

Can I drop in, or do I need to commit to a regular schedule?

We have volunteer positions to fit any schedule. Some--such as shelving--require that you commit to two hours a week at a regular day and time. Other tasks are more flexible.

Can kids volunteer?

We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities. Children under 14 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian--which is a great way to get your kids interested in community service and do something fun together.
