Libraries enrich lives . . . volunteers enrich libraries! Be a library volunteer!
Catch the vision and come make it happen. Winston-Salem and Forsyth County are changing
. . . and so are its Libraries. It is no longer just a repository for books, the
Library is a place to meet, share, learn and grow.
As a Library volunteer, you will have an opportunity to contribute to your community,
improve library service, learn new things, enhance your work skills, make new friends,
and become part of a team. We need talented volunteers like you at our downtown
Central Library and at our branch libraries. We offer orientation and training for
volunteers. Call or stop by your local branch for more information, or you can email us. Volunteer opportunities
are filled based on the needs of each Library.
