Can I do my community service at the library?
Note: In-person volunteer opportunities, including volunteering for the Friends of the Library, have been suspended until further notice.
Yes, volunteering at the library can count towards service learning/community service. Our volunteer opportunities are listed at supportmls.org/volunteer. If the community service is court-appointed, we need to know that in advance as we do not accept applicants whose service is related to weapon, drug, or alcohol-related offenses. We do check with an applicant's court-appointed liaison to ensure that the applicant is a good fit for public library service.
