Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are always welcome at the Mount Carroll Township Public Library.  The MTPL Application and Skills Assessment Forms are available at the Circulation Desk.  Both forms must be completed on site.  Volunteers will be contacted as opportunities become available.  Below are just some ideas of how volunteers can help.


There are a variety of opportunities including sorting materials, assisting staff with weekly assignments, special projects and other opportunities based on volunteer skills and Library needs. All opportunities would be scheduled in advance, and not be regular positions.


Whether you are volunteering for school classes, scholarship/college applications, job or personal interests, applications are always accepted. We offer a variety of special tasks throughout the year.

To all volunteers, the Mount Carroll Township Public Library will:

  • provide a general orientation
  • coordinate a schedule to meet the needs of the individual and the Library
  • offer volunteer opportunities that are interesting and challenging
  • appreciate your willingness to share your time and talents with the Library

Volunteers will be asked to:

  • be courteous to Library users and staff
  • be familiar with and comply with relevant Library policies at all times
  • notify the Library if you cannot come for your scheduled volunteer time
