Would you like to make a difference in your community and help out at your public library?  Or maybe you are a student who needs volunteer hours for church or school?  Then we welcome you to volunteer with us! The Elmwood Park Public Library has various volunteer opportunities throughout the year, including assisting us with shelving, staff projects , or special events and programs.

If you are interested in volunteering, please print and fill out a volunteer application (adult or youth) and return it to the Circulation Desk.  We will consider your schedule, skills and interests and contact you if we have current needs. Volunteers will be given a set schedule and staff contact person. If you need to keep track of your hours for school or other organizations, we will be happy to provide a signed letter verifying your time.

Community Service Hours
