Volunteers are vital in the effort to raise funds for the library through used book sales and other events. You can be an integral part of the library and its ability to serve the community by volunteering today.

All volunteers must supply clearances including a Pennsylvania Criminal Background Check, Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, and either an FBI Fingerprint Based Federal Criminal History or Disclosure Statement Application for Volunteers. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old, and those under 18 years must obtain parent/guardian consent. We are unable to accommodate court-ordered community service hours.
