Central Santa Rosa Library Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers at the Central Library

Adult and teen volunteers are an important part of the Central Library.

Most of our volunteers work at shelving and re-shelving the many books we circulate. This requires patience and the strength to push loaded book carts. We provide an orientation to the library as well as specific training on book shelving and the Dewey Decimal System

We also need a smaller number of volunteers to repair books, help with computer use, search shelves, and file.

Teen volunteers must be at least 14 years old and commit to volunteering for a minimum of twenty hours. Teen volunteering is great form of job training. Add experience to your resume while learning important work place skills like: punctuality, reliability, listening to work instructions and asking questions, and interpersonal skills, among other desirable workplace traits.

Ask at the library for a volunteer application.

The Santa Rosa Friends of the Library also accept volunteers to aid in sorting donations, fundraising for the library, and putting together regular booksales. Contact the Friends for more information.
