Current Library Volunteer Opportunities

Below is a list of current volunteer opportunities and accompanying job descriptions. Only the locations with current openings are listed; please check back as this list is updated often.

Due to the recent volume of volunteer applications, the Library does not have any volunteer positions open at this time. Please check back - this page will be updated as volunteer positions become available. We appreciate your interest in volunteering with Boise Public Library.

Additional Information
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 check.

For more information about the volunteer process, please review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook (PDF). Click here for a list of current City of Boise volunteer opportunities.
