Monrovia Public Library provides many services that promote literacy, learning and leisure. Volunteers are an integral part of the Library and help us serve our diverse and vibrant community. The Library is always trying new things, so if you have unique skills, we want to know!
The minimum age for volunteers is 18. Depending on the position, you’ll generally be asked to work a minimum of 6 hours per month for 6-12 months. Teens may talk to the Youth Services department for volunteer opportunities through membership in the Teen Advisory Board (TAB).
Join our volunteers making a difference every day in the library.
