Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, the Burlington Public Library has put in-person volunteer work on hold. If you are a teen looking for volunteer opportunities, please see our Teen Volunteer Squad for virtual volunteer projects.
The library benefits from many wonderful volunteers, both short- and long-term. If you are interested in finding out about volunteer opportunities at the Burlington Public Library, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Jenny Cole by calling 360-755-0760.
The volunteer program at the Burlington Public Library is a win-win proposition:
The volunteers have satisfying experiences
Their service helps us meet the needs of the people we serve
The reasons people choose to volunteer are as varied as the volunteers themselves. Here are a few:
"It's an opportunity to serve, and I get to be around books!"
"It's fun, and I get to meet new people."
"It's the way I get out into the world - it's stress relief for me."
"I feel valued and appreciated, and it feels good to help."
"The library was important to my girls, growing up. Now I can give back.
