Be a Friends Volunteer
Members of the Friends and other volunteers staff the Friends Bookstore at the Main Library, process materials for book sales, staff the annual spring and fall book sales, and help with other activities as needed. Your gift of time helps the Friends raise funds to support opening-day collections in new branch libraries and many special programs and projects.
Library Volunteer Opportunities
Thank you for your interest about volunteer opportunities at Boise Public Library. Due to the recent volume of volunteer applications, the Library does not have any volunteer positions open at this time. Please check back here - as we will update our page as volunteer positions become available. We appreciate your interest in volunteering with Boise Public Library.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, you will be required to review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook and sign a volunteer waiver prior to placement. Some volunteer positions are sensitive in nature and/or involve working closely with at risk populations, and may require you to undergo a criminal history background.
Other Volunteer Resources
See more volunteer opportunities on the City of Boise website under "Get Involved." Under "Volunteer," you can find more volunteer opportunities for other City of Boise departments. In addition to Boise Public Library, a few other examples of City of Boise departments that might have open volunteer opportunities would be: Zoo Boise, Boise Police and Parks and Recreation.
