The Green Tree Library is always receptive to those who can donate their time to the library. Prospective volunteers should read the complete volunteer policy and must complete the volunteer application before they are considered for volunteer opportunities. The volunteer application may picked up in-person or submitted electronically below.
All volunteers at the library must have completed 8th grade and be at least 13 years of age. Those who are between the ages of 13 – 18 and are enrolled in school are considered Student Volunteers. Individuals who are at least 18 years of age but are no longer in high school are considered Adult Volunteers.
Students are welcome to volunteer at the library and play a significant role in making our library work. Our student volunteers help with the daily upkeep of the library and its materials, prepare crafts for programs by coloring, cutting, sorting, etc., and also aid library staff with other special tasks.
Student volunteers do not shelve books, work the circulation desk, shelf read, answer reference questions, read to children, or perform other tasks that belong directly to library staff.
Prospective student volunteers should read the complete volunteer policy and submit an application (online or in-person). After the application is received, an interview with a library staff person will be arranged before a student is begins their volunteer opportunity.
Our adult volunteers play an integral part in making our library work. All adult volunteers receive on-the-job training and help with the daily upkeep of the library and its materials, aid library staff with tasks, put materials away, and have the opportunity to volunteer at our annual Friends of the Library Book Sale.
Adult volunteers do not shelve books, work the circulation desk, shelf read, answer reference questions, read to children, or perform other tasks that belong directly to library staff.
Prospective adult volunteers must submit an application and interview with library staff. Adults will need to obtain clearances before beginning to volunteer at the library and will be given directions on how to obtain them after their interview.
Green Tree Public Library reserves the right to refuse an applicant for volunteer work. In addition, the library does not accept court-mandated volunteers.
