MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Thanks for your interest in volunteering at the Library. We have opportunities for both teens and adults!

The VolunTEEN program is for teens ages 13 through 17 (or until high school graduation) who want to volunteer during the school year or assist with Summer Read during the summer. As a VolunTEEN, you will:
  • Earn volunteer hours while working with staff, children, and families.
  • Use our summer reading software to sign up readers for Summer Read and award prizes.
  • Assist with Library programming.
  • Fulfill optional opportunities available based on the needs of the Library’s location, including, but not limited to, maintaining the cleanliness of the Library’s collection, completing crafts and activities, playing games, and reading with children of all ages.

Unfortunately, out summer cohort is full. Begining September 1, we will accept applicants for our School Year VolunTEEN Program, which runs September through March. If interested, please check back at that time. As always, we appreciate your interest!

If you have already created an account or are a current Summer Read VolunTEEN, access your account here.  
 
Please contact Mrs. Talena Reynolds at 419.259.5229 for further assistance.
The Adult Volunteer Program runs year-round for adults ages 18 or over. Please note that interviews, background checks, and training are required for all applicants. As a trained adult volunteer, you will:
  • Complete activities and crafts, play games and read with children of all ages.
  • Assist with Library programs and events at various Library locations.
  • Fulfill optional opportunities available based on the needs of the Library’s location, including but not limited to straightening shelves, inputting data, and maintaining the cleanliness of the Library’s collection and materials.
By creating an account, you permit the Toledo Lucas County Public Library to obtain an AssureHire background check to be completed on your behalf yearly. If you are a new volunteer, create an account here, and please check your email immediately after submission for confirmation and next-step instructions! 
 
If you have already created an account or are a current volunteer, log into the volunteer portal here.
 
If you are an adult seeking community service hours only or have further questions or concerns about volunteering as an adult, please contact Mrs. Talena Reynolds directly at 419.259.5229. As always, we appreciate your interest!
