9.3 VOLUNTEERS

A “volunteer” is anyone who chooses to perform services for the Library without compensation or expectation of compensation and who performs volunteer services at the direction of Library staff. A volunteer is not an employee of the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library.


The Library welcomes and encourages members of the community to volunteer their time and talents to enrich and expand library services. Volunteers may be used for special events, projects, and activities, or on a regular basis to assist staff. Duties may include, but are not limited to:

· Straightening and organizing magazine shelves.

· Preparing uncataloged paperbacks for circulation (ownership stamp and date due slips).
