Volunteer at the Library

Volunteers help make Salem Public Library a great place to play, learn, and grow. We are grateful to the volunteers who support us, helping at special events, shelving books, pulling holds, repairing materials, and more.

New volunteer applications are accepted any time. Due to high volumes of applications, we may not be able to place all interested volunteers.

We have a two-part process for applying to volunteer at the library.

Step 1: Online Volunteer Orientation
Please watch this 5-minute presentation video to learn more about volunteering at Salem Public Library. You can click “pause” on any of the slides if you need more time to read the information!


Step 2: Online Application

When you see a fit between your volunteer interests and what volunteers do at Salem Public Library, send us an application!

You may also have learned from our Online Volunteer Orientation that the volunteer activity that interests you may require a different kind of application process. Here are some links to those partners, if you wish to reach out to them:
