Volunteering provides teens with valuable job skills and experience that assists with employment searches and college applications while providing the library with much needed assistance. Plus it’s fun!
The Buchanan County Public Library actively encourages volunteers of various skill sets and backgrounds. Volunteers may be used for many library tasks from general housekeeping, landscaping, program support, and routine clerical tasks. Volunteers may not work the circulation desk, access patron records or information, library business information, or any employment information. Volunteers will be required to meet with the Library Director and/or the Library Administrative Assistant to discuss expectations, scheduling, and task assignment. The Library Director may reject any volunteer or make task assignments based on library needs and volunteer skills. No youth under 14 years of age will be accepted as a library volunteer unless under the supervision of a Boy or Girl Scout leader, school personnel, or a church group leader.
Everyone who volunteers 25 hours or more will receive a BCPL Volunteer T-shirt.
