Library Volunteers

Volunteers are a welcome addition to the Avon Library, providing support services to staff or working on special projects.

Volunteers contribute their time, knowledge and experience in many ways:

Library Board members use their varied backgrounds in helping the library fulfill its mission in maintaining the wonderful library that we have, while also planning for the future.  Contact the Library Director or any current Board of Directors member to learn more.

Friends of the Library run the annual book sale, sponsor programs, produce a newsletter, run the Garden Swat Team, and help the library in countless other ways.  Visit the Friends page on this website for more information about joining and volunteering with the Friends.

The Marian Hunter History Room is maintained by volunteers with help from the Avon Historical Society.

Adopt a Shelf Volunteers help maintain the order and appearance of our collections.

Numerous other volunteers help deliver books to the home-bound, assist with book processing, help in the Children’s room, and compile mailings.

Those interested in volunteering should read the Volunteer Policy, then complete a Volunteer Application Form and bring it to the library.
