Adult Volunteers

Please note: All volunteer positions are currently filled. We thank you for your interest in assisting our community!

We accept applications for adult volunteers to share their talents, skills and knowledge assisting library staff with a variety of services. We request a commitment of six months, at three hours per week. Please fill out our Volunteer Application Form. If you prefer a paper form, please ask at the Circulation or Reference Desks. Once applications are received and reviewed, volunteers will be contacted if there is an opening that matches their skills.

This is a rewarding experience for individuals who are excited to learn, have fun and meet new people. We provide training and support for all candidates. If you have any questions about the process, please email Emelia at [email protected].

Teen Room Teen Volunteers

The Teen Room has a few volunteer options for local high school students!

  • Joining the Teen Advisory Board. This once a month meeting is your chance to help plan programming, provide feedback on the teen area to make the Goodnow Library a better place for teens!
  • Shelf Reading and collection maintenance
  • Writing book reviews, creating book lists and displays
  • Running a program for tweens. This can look like book clubs, Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, coding workshops, gaming clubs, dance workshops, or really anything that fits your interests! We love offering teen-led programs.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Teen Librarian, Lily, at [email protected].
