Volunteers can shelve books, create displays, organize and clean shelves, assist with events, prepare crafts, select items for homebound patrons, monitor movies, provide computer assistance and more. Volunteer positions can be very flexible to fit busy schedules.
To volunteer, return an application and interest survey to any MCPL location. Adults, teens and families are all welcome to apply. Adults 55+ may apply for additional benefits via the United Way's RSVP program.
