Community needs for Houston Public Library's educational, recreational, and informational services are continually increasing. Working together, volunteers and paid staff can help meet these increased demands despite a limited budget. Not only can volunteers help the library--it's a two-way street. Volunteers acquire new skills, meet interesting people and experience the satisfaction of sharing their talents with others.
Special effort is made to match the interests of volunteers with their work assignments. Explore opportunities to work with children, share library information, process materials, or assist with special projects. Volunteering at Houston Public Library is one way you CAN make a difference!
