Unable to commit to 6 weeks of the Summer Reading Program, or want more volunteer hours? Consider becoming a substitute. Just let the staff in the Children's Services or Adult/Teen Services departments know that you would like to be a substitute. Your name will be added to the substitute list and you may be called to fill in for another student. You must attend an Orientation at the library where you wish to volunteer. This is required for all substitutes and regular volunteers.


We count on you to be at your scheduled time each week. If you will be unable to volunteer during your scheduled shift, please complete this form and return it to the department where you volunteer. The library staff will arrange a substitute for you.
