Volunteer Opportunities

Make a difference in your community – volunteer at your local library!

With the support of Lincoln City Libraries staff, over 1,000 volunteers currently donate their time and talents in our libraries throughout the year. Our volunteers have a variety of reasons for contributing their time, talent, and energy to Lincoln City Libraries. Reasons for volunteering include:

  • wanting to “give back” something to the community
  • completing a high school graduation requirement
  • being productive while job-searching
  • getting exercise while shelving books
  • because it’s fun!

Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals who have completed 5th grade and on up; please contact the Library location where you are most interested in volunteering.
