The Role of Volunteers

The Board acknowledges that volunteer involvement adds to the capacity of the Library and provides volunteers with opportunities for personal growth and contribution to the community. Volunteers play a vital role in enhancing connections between the Library and the communities it serves, and free Library staff to carry out the activities for which they are uniquely qualified, trained, and suited.

Volunteers are required to participate in orientation and training sessions. Activities of Library volunteers are carried out under the general supervision of Library staff, according to their task.

Volunteers are required to comply with all relevant Board Policies, Administrative Policies and standards of conduct established for volunteers. Performance feedback must be provided on a regular basis and as required.

The Board shall formally recognize the contributions of volunteers.
