Volunteering at a Broward County Library is a unique and meaningful way for residents to give something very valuable of themselves back to their community: their time. Opportunities exist for teens, adults and seniors.
 
Whether you want the chance to make a difference in someone’s life, make friends and have fun, or earn valuable community service hours and professional experience, the library is a place where you can share your special skills and better your world.
 
The Broward County Library relies heavily on volunteers to deliver an array of programs and services from computer technology, shelving books, tutoring a student to leading a library tour. Whatever your special skills or interest areas, we can find a place for you with flexible hours that fit your schedule!
   
More than 1,900 new volunteers - students, seniors, boomers, working parents, and business professionals contribute their talents, skills and knowledge to the communities of Broward County Public Library.
 
To get started, please complete the Volunteer Interest Form. Once completed, your contact information will be forward to the locations you selected for further consideration.
 
The applications below can be filled out on your computer and then printed. Upon request, the completed application and photo identification can be taken to the library location where you would like to volunteer. Volunteers under the age of 18 will need their parent/guardian signature on these forms. Please note: There's an approval process and background check associated with the application process. For more information, you can also e-mail us at
LibraryVolunteers@broward.org.

 LVP Opportunities for Teens

Need Community Service Hours? You can get them at a Broward County Library, where you can make new friends and have a good time, all while you fulfill your school requirements! Volunteering is also a great way to get real-life work experience, enhance your résumé, and give a boost to your college applications.

Teen VolunteersIf you’re interested in honing your leadership skills, you can join our Teen Advisory Board. Almost every Broward County Library location has one, and they provide valuable input on teen programs and events as well as the selection of books and other materials.

To fast track your involvement, just stop by any branch library and see a Youth Services Librarian for details.
