Volunteer opportunities

Volunteer looking a book

There are many volunteer opportunities at the Carroll County Public Library. In our locations, volunteers play an important role by assisting with collection maintenance, and with program development. At library headquarters, volunteers help with various clerical tasks. Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age by the time they begin volunteering.

Service learning may be available for students who volunteer. Students are responsible for checking with their school to verify that their hours will qualify. For more information, contact your local branch.
