Volunteering at APL


Volunteers
  • The Alexandrian Public Library welcomes volunteers, but does not accept any liability for the health or safety of the volunteer resulting from any of the volunteer's actions. Volunteers are utilized to perform routine tasks which can be easily taught and remembered; or special projects tailored to talents the volunteer may possess. Volunteers may also be asked to assist a staff member in his/her duties, or to help supervise at Library programs. There is not always a task waiting for a volunteer, but every attempt will be made to find a task when there is a person willing to give of his or her time and knowledge to help the Library. Still, APL reserves the right to turn away volunteers when no suitable work can be found, or if there is any question as to the suitability of the worker for the library.
Community Service Workers
  • The Alexandrian Public Library will attempt to provide duties for community service workers whenever there are persons needing to work such hours, but APL also reserves the right to turn away such workers when no suitable work can be found, or if there is any question as to the suitability of the worker for the library. Community service workers must let the library know how many hours they are required to work, arrange in advance of their arrival, show up on time, and carry out the work assigned in an efficient and courteous manner, in order to be allowed to work at the Library. Specific information must be supplied on a library form, similar to a job application, before APL will accept Community Service Workers. The Library will not be liable for injuries to the person or property of Community Service Workers.
