Volunteer at the Library

Make a difference in someone’s life.

Share your skills and passions as a Calgary Public Library volunteer and help your community thrive.

Volunteering at the Library means helping Calgary’s youngest citizens build learning skills, making stories come to life for little ones, delivering library materials to seniors, helping patrons explore computer technology, and much more. It means developing new skills, sharing your love of reading and libraries with others, and making new friends.

Each year, our 2,500+ dedicated volunteers contribute 53,000+ volunteer hours. These hours have an economic value of more than $1,538,000 that directly benefits over half-a-million patrons by allowing us to offer more programs, in more locations, more often, to more Calgarians.
