Mission

Spring Lake District Library seeks to connect and strengthen our community through a welcoming environment open to everyone, providing access to a wide variety of materials and experiences.

Volunteer

Volunteers provide valuable support and assistance to the library staff. Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Shelving books
  • Computer tutoring
  • Preparing for programs

Volunteers must be 12 years of age or older.  To apply, pick up a volunteer application at the checkout desk and fill it out or click here to fill out an interest form. This is not the same as an application.

During the summer, the Youth Services department seeks teen volunteers for assistance with Summer Reading. Applications are usually due by mid-April.
