Please call the Volunteer Office at (970) 224-6183 to check on current needs and for volunteer event and program opportunities. Do you have a special skill or talent that you think we could use? Let us know!
Please note that the Volunteer Program Office will be closed starting on Friday December 23rd, opening on Tuesday January 3rd. You are free to apply online at any time, but no volunteer interviews or placements will be done during that time.
We take volunteers for on-going and one-time assignments. If you need to satisfy educational or court-ordered requirements, just let us know ahead of time. If you are a college student interested in Library Science as a major or a Business or Creative Writing student who just loves libraries, we have limited internship opportunities available every semester. Just ask!
You are welcome to apply using our online form. After the form is received, you will be contacted via email for an interview. After the interview, if we are a good match for each other, you will be required to complete an online background check that will cost you $10.50. (Background checks are run only on those 18 years old and older, and must be renewed every 2 years After you have been with us for 6 months and have served at least 10 hours, you may request a refund of the $10.50 cost).
Volunteers are the most important resource a community organization can have. Working for the betterment of the community in which you live is a win-win for you and us! The stereotypical volunteer has changed for the better! We enjoy volunteers who come from all walks of life; teenagers learning new skills, parents and executives sharing lifelong passions, or retirees enjoying new friendships. We hope that volunteers need us as much as we need them!
