About Our Adult Volunteer Program
CPLS welcomes and encourages members of the community to contribute their time, talents, and knowledge to become one of our many valued volunteers. Our volunteer program helps us provide the best possible service to the public by enriching and expanding library services.
We encourage volunteer participation at all the library branches. Volunteers are retirees, professionals, homemakers, students, part-time residents, and men and women of all backgrounds who live in surrounding communities. The volunteer program, through the dedication and commitment of our volunteers, allows the library to meet the challenges and needs of our large population of library users.
