We Love Our Volunteers!

Embarking on a volunteering journey at the library is an exciting opportunity to make a positive impact on our community while spending time with other local resident volunteers and our staff. Join us in the adventure of giving back and growing together!

Adult Volunteers

Join us in the morning or afternoon, Monday through Saturday, and become a vital part of our library community.

As an adult volunteer, you’ll dive into the world of shelving books, guiding patrons through our online catalog, and mastering the art of self-checkout stations. Keeping our library spick and span is also part of the adventure!

But that’s not all – unleash your creativity and contribute to special programs like Story Time and Crafts if you’re up for the challenge.

Excited to take on the role of an official SPL volunteer? The process is easy — fill out a quick questionnaire, attend an orientation, and seal the deal with our Confidentiality Agreement.

Teen Volunteers:

Teen Volunteers work with Rachel Heller (youth librarian) in the children’s library.  Volunteers help organize craft projects, put away books, assist with programs and other tasks as needed. The schedule is flexible, from doing a one-time session to helping at the library on a weekly basis.  Volunteers must be between the ages of 14 and 18 years old. For more information, send an email to Rachel Heller (rachel@sheplibrary.org) or download the SPL Teen Volunteer Agreement and return it to the library (we also have paper copies at the library).  Volunteers will coordinate with Rachel ahead of time to organize the schedule and discuss activities.
