Volunteers help the Tarkington Community Library and its staff expand and enrich its services. We effectively use volunteer time and talent as a way to:

  • Assist staff in daily tasks
  • Add services by creating new programs and extending existing programs
  • Promote public awareness of library services

Individuals interested in volunteering at the Library must fill out an application and a waiver form. Potential volunteers who are under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the library to sign this form.

The Library works with the local courts in order for citizens to fulfill required community service hours on a case-by-case basis. 

The library may not accept every community service application.Volunteers are recruited without regard to age, race, creed, color, national origin, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, gender, physical appearance, socioeconomic level, or any other legally protected characteristic.
