Volunteering at Your Library

As a library volunteer, you’ll be helping to provide everyone in our community with life-enriching experiences. Well over 200 volunteers play an important part in the success of this busy, popular library. Volunteering for the library can be very rewarding. You’ll benefit by:

  • Working in a friendly environment
  • Meeting new and interesting people
  • Gaining a feeling of accomplishment
  • Learning about the library and all its resources

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. Those aged 16 or 17 need a signed waiver from a parent/guardian.

What Volunteers Do

(http://champaign.org/support_us/volunteer_at_the_library/what_volunteers_do)

Help is needed with all kinds of tasks, some simple and some more technical, some helping the public and some behind the scenes.

Volunteers vs. Friends

(http://champaign.org/support_us/volunteer_at_the_library/volunteers_vs_friends)

Both groups help the library. What‘s the difference between the two?
