Volunteers

Library Volunteers have been a vital resource over many years allowing the library to expand services to patrons and the community through their dedicated fundraising efforts, and performing countless hours of service in support of library initiatives. Open and fill out the Volunteer Application (hard copies are available at the library) and return to the library to be considered for any open positions.

Those interested in serving on the Library Board of Trustees should Review the position description and responsibilities here. Then download and complete the application. The completed application can be saved to your computer or printed. Printed applications can be mailed or dropped off at the library’s information desk. Applications may also be emailed as attachments to [email protected]

The Friends of UMFPL is a group of passionate library enthusiasts who donate their time and talents to raise funds to help finance Library services and campaigns, focus public attention on Library needs, and promote public support for the Library. Annual fundraisers such as the Jewelry Sale or New Years Eve event are organized by the Friends. In addition to event volunteers, the Friends are currently seeking volunteers to serve on their board (meets monthly, September-June)

Book Sale Volunteers assist the library in raising funds by selling donated and withdrawn items. Volunteers sort, price, and discard items unlikely to sell and assist with maintenance of the Book Sale area of the library, keeping the sale area tidy and updating displays regularly.
