Volunteer Information

Welcome

You’re invited to join our team of volunteers. Whether you are a student (ages 12 and up) or adult, employed or retired, you will be a welcome addition to our library team. Anacortes Public Library has many opportunities for you to share your skills, experience, time, and passion for the library.

To join our team of volunteers, complete our online volunteer application.

(The Anacortes community is generous with volunteers, so sometimes the library does not have positions that fit your specific skill set at the time of your application. If this is the case, we will save your application for future opportunities, and we recommend reaching out to other city departments that have volunteer opportunities.)

What can I do? Volunteers may help with a variety of tasks, some simple and some more specialized. Volunteers may come in weekly, monthly, or only assist with a specific event. Volunteers may also help with our community outreach programs.

How can volunteering benefit me? Volunteering at the Library can be a rewarding experience. Some of the things you’ll have the opportunity to do as a volunteer:

  • Learn new skills and exercise old skills
  • Meet new and interesting people
  • Gain a feeling of accomplishment
  • Learn more about the Library and its many resources
  • Make a real difference in the community.
