Be a part of Forbes Library!

Neighborhood Free Book Boxes are coming to Northampton, Leeds and Florence! Volunteers are needed to maintain and stock boxes. Want to help? Email: Outreach@ForbesLibrary.org

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, delivering books to the homebound, 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 fill in the Volunteer Application.

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. Not everyone who applies for a volunteer position will be placed in a job – we receive numerous inquiries for almost every position we post. Last year we had 166 active volunteers contributed over 6000 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!!!”
