Why Volunteer?

  • Learn a new skill
  • Get involved with your community
  • Use your talents
  • Help share the "library experience" with others

Teen volunteers in middle school and above can also get Community Service Hours by volunteering with the library.


Library Volunteers support staff on our mission to INSPIRE, DELIGHT, and EDUCATE ALL.  Together, we can make the Monterey Public Library a welcoming community space for everyone!
