Volunteer Guidelines

Our goal is for library volunteers to feel their time is valued and they are engaged in work that benefits the community. To ensure the experience benefits both the volunteer and the staff, volunteers should be:

  • Looking for an ongoing commitment, 3 months or longer
  • Able to commit to a regular schedule (weekly or monthly) at most 10 hours per week
  • Willing to complete a background check
  • Open to learning new skills
  • Passionate about reading, learning and libraries

Teen volunteer opportunities are designed for teens in grades 8-12 with a Winter Park Library card in good standing.

Please note: The Library does not accept court-ordered volunteers.
