Aurora Public Library has many volunteer opportunities that provide a chance to help the community and get involved. Volunteers are paired with jobs depending on interest, skills and personal schedule. Certain skills, physical capabilities, customer service experience or technical knowledge may be required depending on the job so the best quality service is provided to library patrons. Some positions may require a skills assessment and/or interview before acceptance.

Bilingual abilities are always needed. Some positions allow for flexibility while other positions, because they support critical daily work flow, require a higher level of dedication and dependability. Other positions, where training time is minimal, work well for short-term volunteering like church or school community services projects. Additionally, duties involving cash handling or access to customer library account records are not performed by volunteers due to city policies and state library privacy laws in order to limit liability to the city and its volunteers.

To further protect customer privacy and the confidentiality of city proprietary information, volunteers are asked to sign confidentiality agreements and maintain the highest of professional standards. Volunteers are also subject to a standard background check as many positions involve working with or around children. Volunteers must be ages 14 or older. Volunteers under the age of 18 require parental/guardian consent. 

For more information on volunteering, please call your local branch or email [email protected].

Teen Advisory Group (TAG)

Teens (grades 6 - 12) join your local TAG and let your voice be heard! TAG is a forum where teens can help their community and get a say in what programs they think the library should offer. New members are always welcome, and participation counts as volunteer time. 

TAG is currently meeting via Zoom video conferencing. For upcoming meeting dates, visit our online calendar here. To receive the link to log on, please register for the event and include your email address. The use of Zoom is at your own risk. Aurora Public Library is not liable for damage. If you are under 18, please be sure to have a guardian’s permission to participate in this online program.
