Lincoln City Libraries Volunteers

Lincoln City Libraries Volunteers: Read...Learn...ConnectMake a difference in your community – volunteer at your local library!

  • [photo of volunteer]I volunteer because it is my civic duty. Also, it is good exercise! I also like to volunteer at the library because I enjoy interacting with the public and because the library is a learning environment.

  • [photo of volunteer]I volunteer because I love to read and I love the library! When I volunteer, I feel like I am making a contribution to the library."

  • [photo of volunteer]The reason I volunteer is that it's payback time for all the free books I'm able to read!

  • [photo of volunteer]I volunteer because of the feeling of doing something needed and worthwhile for people who appreciate it!

With the support of Lincoln City Libraries staff, over 1,000 volunteers currently donate their time and talents in our libraries throughout the year. Our volunteers have a variety of reasons for contributing their time, talent, and energy to Lincoln City Libraries. Reasons for volunteering include:

  • wanting to “give back” something to the community
  • completing a high school graduation requirement
  • being productive while job-searching
  • getting exercise while shelving books
  • because it’s fun!

Who can apply?

Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals who have completed 5th grade and on up; please contact the Library location where you are most interested in volunteering.
