Special Category Volunteers:
- High school students and Community Service Hours:
The library welcomes high school volunteers over the age of 14, with parental/guardian approval. These placements are subject to the needs of the particular branch library and there may be a waiting list. Once accepted as a library volunteer, a student must maintain a regular weekly commitment of 1 to 3 hours over a minimum period of three months. Willingness to follow directions and to work conscientiously with minimal supervision are both essential. All applicants will not necessarily be accepted.

- Volunteers increase the productivity and efficiency of paid employees
