Volunteering at the Perry Memorial Library

We appreciate your choice to offer your time and abilities to the Perry Memorial Library! We periodically have volunteer opportunities. We ask that you fill out one of the applications below (adult or teen), so that we have your information. As needs and opportunities arise, we can then contact you.

Adult (18 years and older): 

Please fill out the Adult Volunteer Application found at the Reference Desk or complete the online application found below. We try to match our applicants' interests, abilities, and schedule with available positions. Your application will be kept on file for approximately one year, and you will be contacted if an appropriate position becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact the Adult Services Librarian at 252-438-3316 extension 234. Possible duties may include:

  • Straightening, dusting, shelf reading

  • Special projects - stuffing envelopes, surveys, etc

  • Sharing a talent or interest at a program


Teens (Ages 13 to 18 years old):

We are interested in student volunteers who have completed 7th grade who are self-motivated, reliable, hard-working, and cooperative. Please complete the Teen Volunteer Application found at the Youth Services Desk then return the application to any of the Library's service desks or print the application found below. After your volunteer application is reviewed, your name will be put on a list of potential volunteers. Your name will remain on the list of potential volunteers until a need arises. You will be contacted if we are in need of a volunteer.
