Volunteer FAQ's

How old do I have to be?
Adult volunteers must be at least age 18 or have graduated from high school. Teen volunteers must be at least age 12 or going into seventh grade. These folks should contact the Youth Services Department.

How many hours a week will the library expect from me?
The library asks an average of 2 hours per week.

Can I complete my court-ordered community service at the library?
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.

We are grateful to all the men and women who volunteer their time to help us at the library. This benefits not only the library, but also the patrons as well.
