Volunteer with APL

Visit Aurora Volunteer Center for current volunteer opportunities with Aurora Public Library.
Positions are only available when posted.

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 18 and older may be subject to a standard background check as many positions involve working with or around children. Volunteers must be ages 13 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].
