From shelving books at your local library to instructing an Internet training session, volunteering at the library strengthens the community. Volunteering is as flexible as your schedule. Last year, more than 921 volunteers gave more than 34,000 hours of their time to the library system. This equals the full-time equivalent of 16.42 employees!

The Library's Adult Literacy Service offers one-on-one tutoring to adults and young adults (16+) who wish to improve their reading and writing skills. Our tutors are people from the community. Our tutors are people who find that a couple hours a week spent helping someone learn to read -- helping someone better his or her life -- is time well spent. Our tutors are people like you.
