We welcome volunteers! Even if you can only give one hour per month, you can help enhance the library’s programs, services, and mission.

Your volunteer experience should be enjoyable and worthwhile. That’s why we train all of our volunteers.

Volunteers must be at least 15 years old. If you are 17 years old or younger, please submit a letter of recommendation with your application.

Programming Volunteers

Volunteers in this area help by making name tags, greeting program attendees, putting together craft kits, and much more. This position is for the friendly and hospitable person who likes to help others get acquainted with the library.

These volunteers commit on an event-by-event basis and work with children, teen, or adult programs.

Homebound Delivery Volunteers

Library Link volunteers select, check out, deliver, and return library materials to Jessamine County’s homebound residents. You must have your own transportation.

There are also a few positions with the Library Link program that only require volunteers to select and checkout items at JCPL. Someone else will then deliver and return the items.

Library Link positions require a minimum six-month commitment to the library.
