Volunteers play an important role as partners in the Library's mission of enriching lives by educating, informing, enlightening, and entertaining the residents of Brown County.
We have a number of rewarding opportunities for volunteers including: supporting children and teen programming, keeping our collections in order, assisting with clerical work, helping patrons with technology, serving children nutritious meals through our meals program (when applicable), tutoring and homework help, and several other specialized roles.
Are you a good fit to be a volunteer at the Brown County Public Library?
We host many volunteers annually throughout our system; however, sometimes a volunteer simply does not match available opportunities. Here is a quick guide to determine if you would be a good match for our opportunities:
- Age 12 or older
- Looking for an ongoing opportunity lasting three months or longer
- Love the library
- Note: We currently do not accept court-mandated or diversion program volunteers.
