Library Volunteer Program: Where Community, Commitment, and Camaraderie Come Together

If you are looking for a way to meet new people, participate in community life, learn new skills, or just get out of the house a few hours each week, the Paso Robles City Library's Adult Volunteer Program offers opportunities in many areas of library service. If you have strong customer service skills and the ability to multi-task, you may enjoy one of the public desks. If you prefer working independently and are detail-oriented, you may enjoy shelving or sorting donations. If you excel in the retail environment, you may enjoy working in the Friends of the Library Gift Shop, located just off the lobby. All positions require a commitment of 2 to 4 hours, one day per week, a positive attitude, and a desire to be part of the library world.

The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10-8, and Saturday 10-5. For more information on library programs and events, please call 805-237-3870 or visit
