How to Apply
Due to considerable interest in volunteering at KCLS, please ask staff at your local library about these opportunities. Once it's determined that there is a good match, staff will email you a link to our Library Volunteer application.
Volunteers must complete signature forms, interview, and Washington State Patrol criminal history check. Please allow up to several weeks for this process.
Directed Fieldwork: Post-high school students in library science programs interested in earning credit hours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
