Volunteer Opportunities

We offer volunteer opportunities in every part of the library and through our community outreach library services. Even if you are only able to give one hour a month, you can help enhance the library’s programs, services, and mission. We provide training to ensure that your volunteer experience is both enjoyable and worthwhile. Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age.

Programming Assistance

Volunteers in this area help by making nametags, greeting program attendees, putting together craft kits, and much more. This position is for the friendly and hospitable person who likes to help others get acquainted with the library. These volunteers commit on an event-by-event basis and work with either children, teen, or adult programs.

Outreach

Bringing library services to people in the county who cannot get to our building is a top service priority. Much volunteer help is needed to make our outreach programs a success.

Library Link volunteers select, check out, deliver, and return library materials to Jessamine County’s homebound residents. Use of own transportation is required for this volunteer opportunity. There are also a few volunteer positions with the Library Link program that only require volunteers to select and checkout items at JCPL. These items are then delivered and returned by another individual. Library Link positions require a minimum 6-month commitment to the library.
