Home Volunteer at the Library

The Wells County Public Library offers a variety of volunteer opportunities, including helping at special events or volunteering weekly at one of our branches. Volunteers are a very important component of our workforce and help us provide the best service possible to the community.

Depending on the need of the library, volunteers help with anything from organizing books, cleaning books, sorting DVDs, answering computer questions, working on the library scrapbook, and more.

We want the experience to benefit both the volunteers and our staff. For this reason, we ask that anyone volunteering commit to an agreed upon schedule and give reasonable notice if they are unable to report to work. Regularly-scheduled library volunteers must be at least 15 years of age and those helping with special events must be at least 13 years of age (or accompanied by an adult).

If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please fill out a volunteer application. After your application is reviewed, the volunteer coordinator will contact you to inform you of an upcoming training session or schedule an interview to determine if you’d be a good fit as a volunteer in our library and the best volunteer job for your qualifications and interests.
