Looking for an enriching summer experience? Look no further. Volunteer at the library!


  • Teens (ages 12-17) -  Work has never been this fun. Join us as a Summer Reading Club VolunTeen. There are a limited number of opportunities, so sign up early. Please note that some branches' available volunteer slots fill up fast, so you may be asked to select another location. 


  • Adults (age 18 and older) - Although teens do most of our summertime volunteer work, we still need help with daytime Reading Buddies and our 5 Ready for Kindergarten areas. We are also accepting applications for adults who want to help at our Homework Help Centers, which will re-open in mid-August. Sign up now, then watch for a postcard inviting you to a training session at your neighborhood branch. 

If you have questions about any of our volunteer opportunities, email swolford@columbuslibrary.org or call 614-849-1055.
