WANT TO VOLUNTEER?

Volunteers make a remarkable contribution to Arapahoe Libraries. In 2019, our hard-working volunteers donated a grand total of 21,941 hours of service to Arapahoe Libraries. Each volunteer brings a unique skill set, life experience and personality, allowing us to achieve far more than we could on our own.

Adults and teens (grade 7 and up) are welcome to participate in the volunteer program. We depend on volunteers to teach computer classes, help with early childhood literacy programs, work with The Friends of Arapahoe Libraries, shelve library materials, assist with the Summer Reading Program and so much more.
