Library Volunteers

"Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in."    

The Paso Robles City Library Volunteer Program began in 1995 and serves to support staff in the daily operation of the library. With a variety of volunteer positions, we can match you with an opportunity that will bring you camaraderie, challenges, and fun!

All positions require an on-going weekly commitment of one day, 2 to 3 hours, a positive attitude, and a desire to help with library operations.
