Due to the current closing of the Library System to the public, we have suspend taking applications for volunteers. Thank you for your interest.
The Williamson County Public Library Volunteer Program is designed to expand and enhance public service to the community. Volunteers partner with staff to provide the support necessary to implement the mission and programs of the library system. Volunteers shall provide support services to paid staff and shall not be used to supplement or replace the work done by the library staff.
Applications are reviewed by the members of the Management Team. Volunteers are selected based upon their qualifications and the needs of the Williamson County Public Library at any given time. Qualified applicants will be contacted if a volunteer position becomes available. Applicants should be prepared to provide character references and emergency contact information and to discuss possible interest prior to the acceptance of an applicant. Applicants will be called if a position is identified which matches the applicant’s interests or qualifications.
Applicants must be at least 14 years old to qualify for a Volunteer. Applicants between the ages of 14 and 18 shall require a parent or guardian to attest to the minor’s age by signing an affidavit. In addition, the parent or guardian will be asked to sign a release, releasing Williamson County Government, Williamson County Public Library, its employees, directors, officers, board members or volunteers from any injury or damage suffered by the minor volunteer.
Thank you for applying to volunteer with the Williamson County Public Library system. Your interest in assisting at the library is greatly appreciated.
Volunteer orientation occurs once a month, at different times and dates each month to accommodate as many people as possible. If you have been contacted about volunteering at the library, please plan on attending an orientation at the beginning of your service to the library. Exceptions and one-off orientations are allowed on a case by case basis.
