Volunteer

Help your community by helping your Library.

Volunteers are an essential part of the Auburn Public Library, and the Library provides a multitude of volunteer opportunities. You can read to kids in daycare, help with our twice-a-year book sale, teach a senior how to use a computer, help organize and maintain library collections, help host library programs, or join our Friends Group – among many other options.

We have volunteer opportunities available for teens, adults, and retirees of a wide variety of interests and abilities.
