Volunteer at the Library

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Kirkwood Public Library! During Summer Reading volunteers help us with tasks such as shelving, signing customers up for the Summer Reading Program, passing out prizes, making craft samples, organizing, program prep, and other special projects. Volunteers are typically scheduled for one 2 hour shift per week. Open to teens entering grades 6-12.

Big Reading Buddies mentor children in grades 1-4 through our Reading Buddies program. Volunteers will be assisting children in reading, literacy games, and activities each week! Applicants will participate in an interview process, and applying does not guarantee a spot.
