Volunteers are an essential part of the library's operations. They perform a wide variety of tasks including homebound delivery, story time help, disc & book repair, shelf-reading, newspaper indexing, photocopying, computer class and program assistance, ESL and Math tutoring, and more!
Volunteers of the Year!
Every year Fremont Public Library presents the Mike Steinberg Volunteer of the Year Award to the volunteer (or volunteers) who have given significant service to the library.
We present the Volunteer of the Year Award in spring at our Volunteer Appreciation luncheon. The plaque containing the names of the recipients is displayed in the lobby of the library.

Are you interested in volunteering at Fremont Public Library? Here's what you need to know.
Adult volunteers must be at least 18 years old or have graduated from high school. Teen volunteers must be at least age 12 or going into seventh grade and volunteer through the Teen F.I.T. program.
The average volunteer works about one 2-hour shift per week; we ask that new volunteers commit to at least six months, as we require references and background checks to be run.
You do not need to be a Fremont cardholder to volunteer.
Please note: The library is not able to supervise those looking for court-ordered community service opportunities. The Lake County Circuit Court can help you find a place to perform your community service.
Where else in the community can I volunteer?
One place to find other local volunteer opportunities is Find Help Lake County, a website created by United Way of Lake County.
