Volunteer Opportunities


 Are you interested in volunteering at the Library?

 On behalf of all of us at the St. Helena Public Library, we want to thank you for your interest in joining our team of volunteers! Our volunteers work with Library users and staff to learn new skills, to meet new people, and most importantly to give back to our community. Volunteers at the Library are surrounded by fascinating and informative resources in a variety of formats, by fun and educational programs, and by an experienced Library team.

All those interested in volunteering at the Library must read the Aspiring St. Helena Public Library Volunteer Packet that contains the City of St. Helena Volunteer Policy & Procedures Handbook. The purpose of this packet is to give you an overview of the City’s Volunteer Program and of how the Library coordinates volunteers. This Handbook has all the information you need to know to apply. The Application form and City of St. Helena Waiver & Release are required of all volunteer applicants in order to be considered for the Volunteer Program.

The City of St. Helena encourages the participation of youth in City and community activities. Young people aged 14 and over may apply to volunteer for the City in positions for which they are qualified, if they have written parental permission. Young volunteers are expected to abide by all City program policies and procedures. A child under 14 may volunteer only if their parent or guardian is present at all times (supervising the child’s duties) and participates in the required training. The parent or guardian must sign the Volunteer Application, and go through the process of becoming a volunteer with their child.- City of St. Helena Volunteer Policy & Procedures Handbook.

**While we strive to place as many volunteers as possible within our organization, the Library may not be able to place each applicant. Young volunteer positions are limited to a maximum of five young volunteers in one afternoon.**
