Supporting Your Library
The Whitewright Public library welcomes and encourages members of the community to volunteer their time and talents to enrich and expand library services. Volunteers are expected to conform to all policies of the library, and are selected and retained for as long as the library needs their services.
Volunteers may be used for special events, projects, and activities or on a regular basis to assist staff. Services provided by volunteers will supplement, but not replace, regular services, and volunteers will not be used in place of hiring full- or part-time staff. Volunteers may apply for paid positions under the same conditions as other outside applicants. Paid staff may volunteer in other departments of city government outside of the library.
Types of Volunteer Work
Shelving and/or organizing materials, dusting shelves, vacuuming are year-round needs. We recommend that volunteers work in 1 - 2 hour time periods.
Our Annual Book Sale requires three-days of setup (setting up tables, bringing books out of storage and sorting) before the sale. During the sale time, volunteers are needed to help with the checkout.
