There are many different things you can do. What are your talents and interests? Put them to good use in the friendly congenial atmosphere of Forbes Library.

Volunteers can help in many areas of the library, including book shelving, clerical tasks, circulation support, information technology, craft projects, special collections, homework help, landscaping & yard work, or special projects.

If you would like to volunteer at Forbes, please download an application. You may also pick up an application at the Circulation Desk, or call 413-587-1017.

Volunteers contribute in every department of the library in so many ways. Our volunteers make it possible in these times of reduced budgets for the staff to offer the level of services that the community needs. Volunteers bring a treasured variety of experience and character to help make Forbes the special place it is. Last year we had over 25 active volunteers contribute hundreds of hours of time to the library. We genuinely appreciate our volunteers. We do not exaggerate when we say, “We couldn’t do it without you!!!”
