Our volunteers are vital to the library's success.  By volunteering with us, you can acquire new skills, gain recognized work experience, expand your social horizons, give back to your community, and more. 


Why volunteer?

Our volunteers have many reasons for giving their time and talent to our library.  These are some reasons given by our veteran volunteers:

  • “It gives me an opportunity to give back to a library where the community is encouraged to visit and utilize the materials.”
  • “Meet and work with people who live in the Wells Branch area and elsewhere!”
  • “The friendliness of the staff and the opportunity to meet new folks make it all worthwhile.”
  • “Being part of it [the Library]!”

 

Who can volunteer?

Anyone aged 14 or older can be a library volunteer.  If you are interested in helping at the Library, we are interested in you! 

Volunteers are selected on the basis of their application, interview, and current library needs. Applications can be picked up at the library Circulation Desk.

Court-Ordered Community Service

We currently only accept court-ordered community service for applicants in the 78728 ZIP Code.

 *Please note the Library cannot accept “drop-in” volunteers. Volunteering requires a consistent schedule, supervision, and preparation of assignments.


What do volunteers do?

We have many different opportunities available!  Below is sample of common volunteer opportunities in our library.  Not all positions are available at a particular time.  Please see our page on VolunteerMatch to find out which positions are currently open!

"There is divine beauty in learning, just as there is human beauty in tolerance. To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you."

—Elie(zer) Wiesel (b. 1928) Romanian-born writer, lecturer, survivor Nazi camps, Nobel
