Volunteering for Danville Public Library can be a rewarding and exciting experience. Volunteer time, energy and goodwill are invaluable assets to the Library because volunteerism enhances the Library’s ability to fulfill its mission by providing opportunities for direct public participation in library services. Volunteerism also strengthens and deepens the Library’s relationships throughout the community. Volunteer opportunities offer citizens a way to contribute to the community, fulfill personal goals, achieve a sense of satisfaction, and learn more about the Library. Volunteers help Danville Public Library expand and enrich its services. Volunteers will not be used to replace the work done by paid library staff.
Individuals interested in volunteering at the Library must fill out an application and a waiver form.
