Volunteering at CRDL
Who?
  • Students, homemakers, senior citizens, families, businesspersons-anyone fourteen years of age and over can help our library deliver a variety of quality services to the community.

When?

  • Volunteers can help out whenever the library is open, Sunday through Saturday, though some positions require specific time availability.

Why?

  • Community needs for CRDL'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 and time with others.

Job Descriptions

  • Office Aides - Perform basic office tasks including copying, cutting, shredding, filing and cleaning.
  • Outreach Aides - Help promote library events and services by driving around town to put up promotional flyers and help bring library materials to senior centers around Mount Pleasant. Must have a valid driver's license.
  • Program Aides - Assist staff with program set-up, clean-up, and running of events. Some volunteers may take photos and organize photos in scrapbooks.
  • Special Projects Aides - Throughout the year, various special projects will come up which volunteers may be recruited for. These projects may by short-term, or one-day, while others may be long-term, ongoing projects.
  • Internships - College students looking to meet graduation requirements may apply for internships in library experience, computers and marketing.

Volunteers may apply for short-term and/or long-term positions.

As a non-profit organization, volunteers may fulfill school or scholarship requirements for volunteer hours with CRDL. However, we do not accept applications for court-based community service.

Guidelines

  • To make volunteering more enjoyable for you, prospective volunteers attend an orientation prior to volunteering. During this one-on-one orientation, volunteers will be familiarized with the library and our policies, and we will discuss your interests and availability so we can find the best volunteer position for you.

Please remember, volunteers supplement staff and work with them; they do not replace CRDL's hardworking, dedicated staff.

If you are interested in volunteering at CRDL, please complete this application. Once your application has been received, the Volunteer Coordinator will call to set up an orientation.

We look forward to working with you!
