Volunteers are important partners in the Library's mission to provide patrons with knowledge and information that support lifelong learning. The Library is fortunate to have over 30 volunteers providing assistance with services for patrons, hosting community events and maintaining attractive collections.

The Olson Memorial Library occasionally has volunteer opportunities for interested community members.  Examples of volunteer projects include:

  • Circulation desk--checking books in and out, entering new patrons
  • Shelving books and other materials
  • Preparing books and other materials for the shelves--applying book protection covers, CD and DVD protectors, affixing labels
  • Repairing books
  • Searching for and preparing books and other materials for Interlibrary Loan delivery and/or for hold shelf when received
  • Calling patrons when Interlibrary Loan materials have been received
  • Helping in our childrens' department 
  • Correspondence to donors

If you would be interested in volunteering at the library, please read our volunteer policy, and then print, complete, and return the Volunteer Application and Background Check Form.  Your application will be kept on file, and Mickee Stuckemeyer, Volunteer Coordinator will contact you if we have a project we feel you would be suited for.  If further information is needed, just call us at 479-8070.
