Volunteer @ the Library

Join over 80 of your friends and neighbors and volunteer at the Orcas Island Library. Volunteer staff are the backbone of the Library from checking in books, computer downloading of new books, covering new materials, to checking out books to patrons.

There is always a need for additional volunteer staff.

Volunteer positions include: Front Desk (checking in and out materials, shelving), Shelf Maintenance, Computer Processing, Book Covering, Special Projects, Gardening, Displays, and Adult and Childrens Program Support.

Volunteers usually work one three-hour shift once a week. Substitutes always available for vacations and trips off-island. Some positions allow for every-other-week schedules. Volunteers need to enjoy working with people of all ages and not be afraid of computers. Training is provided on library computers for all volunteers. New volunteer training is scheduled as people are recruited and is personalized for each person and position.

For more information on becoming part of the Orcas Library team, please call 360-376-4985 or Email Kathy Lunde, Public Services Librarian.
