Volunteer with Norfolk Public Library

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer!

Volunteers work side-by-side with city employees to strengthen customer service and programs and in effect enhance and emphasize the Library's relationship with the local community. The Norfolk Public Library is a diverse, interactive and resourceful tool serving the community of Norfolk. There are many opportunities to suit different interests and skills within NPL.

Who can Volunteer?

The Norfolk Public Library has opportunities available for adults, teens (age 13 and up), families (age 8 and up volunteering alongside an adult), and groups, as well as hours required for school and court-ordered community service on a case-by-case basis.
