Volunteers at the Peabody Public Library perform important functions and help the library staff with day-to-day tasks as well as special projects. Volunteers are assigned to activities according to their interests, skills and availability, with training provided as needed. Adult Department volunteers assist with programs, maintain shelf order, do clerical filing and housekeeping and work with the technical services staff to repair materials. Children’s Department volunteers do many of these same tasks, as well as prepare craft materials for programs, help with seasonal decorations and create advertising flyers.
We will be happy to work with your schedule to set up days and times for your volunteering. Begin the process by filling out a Volunteer Application Form. Applications can also be picked up at either the circulation desk or the children’s desk.
