Volunteering at SPL


Why Volunteer?

Sedona Public Library could not function without our volunteers. Over 150 volunteers currently donate thousands of hours annually to provide valuable assistance to the staff and patrons of the Library. Volunteering offers those individuals an opportunity to develop lasting friendships and feel genuine satisfaction in a job well done.

How Does It Work?

We have opportunities in:

  • Circulation (Checking items in and out, shelving, shelf reading, processing new library cards, pulling holds)
  • Technical Services (Book mending, book covering, tape/CD/DVD maintenance)
  • Periodicals (Preparing magazines for shelving and sale, newspapers)
  • Interlibrary Loan (Requesting items from and sending items to libraries outside the Yavapai Library Network)
  • Donations and Book Sales (Research, internet book sales, organize materials for sale)
  • Children’s Programs (After-school program, summer reading program, shelving)
  • Special Projects (Historian and others as needed)
  • Information Technology (Computer assistants, tech tutoring)
  • Our Business Office.

Most volunteers work two to four hours per week. Many work more. Some volunteers work for more than one department. Other volunteers prefer to be on-call only and substitute for volunteers who must be away from their shift.

When we receive your application, we will call you to set up an interview. To check the status of your application, please contact the Sedona Public Library volunteer coordinator.
