Volunteering at Kitchigami Regional Library

Interested in volunteering at your local KRL branch library?

  • Do you value the library and want to communicate that to the rest of the community?
  • Do you have time to contribute on a regular schedule for 3 months or more to activities at the library that supplement and enhance its services?
  • Do you have a special skill or ability that would help the library with a special project?

Then the library has volunteer opportunities for you!

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.

Why volunteers?

  • Volunteers bring great ideas and skills to our programs
  • Volunteers partners with library staff and local library committees to bring the best possible library service to the community
  • Volunteers increase the productivity and efficiency of paid employees
  • Volunteers extend the library’s sphere of contacts with individuals, businesses and organizations in the community
  • Volunteers connect KRL to the communities it serves
