Volunteer to Help the Library and Community

Do you enjoy helping the community by volunteering?  The Anderson Public Library now has volunteer opportunities for everyone who would like to share their special talent or desire to improve Anderson County.

Volunteering at the library can involve something as simple as adopting a shelf of books to giving classes to help teach skills to others.  There are opportunities for all skill levels.

A number of current volunteers have found helping at the library to be very rewarding.  Anderson County resident, Sue Priddy, gave over 20 hours to help conduct a very successful children’s summer reading program.

Some of the many volunteer programs available at the library include helping with events, working teens/young adults, diving into history and genealogy, as well as keeping shelves of books in order.  Those with special skills like artists or computer specialists can also lead classes and workshops.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact Alison Morgan, Assistant Director, at 502-839-6420 or amorgan@andersonpubliclibrary.org for more information.  A background check is required for all volunteers over 18 years old, and the minimum age to volunteer is 12 years old. The Library does not accept volunteers who are completing court ordered community service hours.
