Individuals who are interested in contributing their time and talents to the Library’s program and its mission are welcome at the Pearl River Public Library.
PRL has two main avenues for people wishing to volunteer: the Library and the Friends of the Library.
Description of Volunteer Program
The PRL Volunteer Program is governed by the Board approved Policy “Volunteering”.
Individual volunteer opportunities depend upon departmental needs, and may be seasonal or project-based.
Volunteers are meant to help, not replace, the Library staff. School age volunteers looking to earn community service credit may be appointed based on the availability of work at the time of application. The same is true of court-appointed community-service volunteers. For more on this subject see the Volunteer Program Description.
People wishing to volunteer will be required to fill out a Volunteer Application (see above links) and furnish references. Volunteers will be interviewed and appointed for specific periods of time. Volunteers are required to adhere to Library policies.
Volunteers must be approved by the Library Director. Photo identification shall be required.
Volunteer must be 15 years or older.
All 15-year-old volunteers will be required to have working papers.
