Volunteers regularly help us pick up books from our book drops or shelve materials at the library. Volunteering takes as little as one hour a week and we'll work with you to find a schedule that suits your needs. Each year, volunteers help us with over 2000 hours of their time -- more than the time worked by a single full-time employee!
The library currently has openings for volunteers to assist with shelving books. Stop by the library for an application, or more information! You can read about Cris Herrlich, one of our many dedicated volunteers, in this recent Burlington Free Press Article.
Book-drop volunteers pick up materials on a designated day and return them to the library. Our book drops are located at the Price Chopper on Prim Road and at the Chittenden Bank on Lakeshore Drive.
Shelving volunteers help us get returned materials from the desk and back onto the shelves. Shelving volunteers also tidy shelves, move materials around to prevent overcrowding, and "shelf read" to double-check that materials are in the right order.
