How do I volunteer at the Library?

Thank you for expressing an interest in volunteering at the Library. There are always opportunities for volunteers to help us at the JCLD. We need instructors in our media lab, volunteers in our Young People’s Department, and the collective efforts of those who join the Friends of the Jefferson County Library District.

Friends is a volunteer organization with the goal of promoting a variety of library services and projects offered to the people of Jefferson County. Members of Friends are people like you who believe in the importance of the public library and partner to preserve and strengthen the library by creating awareness and appreciation of library services in the community. Friends of the Jefferson County Library offer support in a variety of ways, including:

Jefferson County Library Endowment.  The Endowment raises funds to assist with projects outside of the scope of general library operations.  For more information about the Library Endowment, please email
