Volunteer at Your Library
If your local library is not listed below, please contact them directly to learn about current volunteer opportunities.
Abington Community Library
- Share your expertise in a particular field as a guest speaker at a library-sponsored program or event. Call for information or bring us your suggestions. Volunteers must respect our "no solicitation" policy. We are currently seeking speakers/instructors on a variety of topics. Examples include:
- Business topics
- Family life
- PC instruction
- Help at our Semi-Annual Book Sales sponsored by the Friends of the Abington Community Library by sorting, displaying, selling, and/or cleaning up. Used book sales are conducted in June and October.
- Conduct book discussion groups for youth and/or adult titles. Choose your book(s) and your level of commitment. Facilitators may opt to handle one or more sessions. Packets will be provided to group leaders - all you need to do is read the book and prepare to lead a lively discussion! Packets include "ground rules" for the group as well as facilitator instructions and discussion questions.
Carbondale Public Library
Interested volunteers are asked to contact the director, Marie Zaccone.

Volunteers may come or call the library to set up a time to volunteer. Volunteers are given information and then tested on how to put books back in the proper order before they are able to shelve books and materials.

Please come to the library and ask to speak to the person responsible for the area in which you would like to volunteer (i.e., children, young adults, etc.) and make arrangements for times and dates.
