Completed forms may be emailed to cvlvolunteer@cvlga.org, faxed to 706-565-8669, or returned in person on the third floor of the Columbus Public Library. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Step 3- Interview/Orientation

Before volunteering with Chattahoochee Valley Libraries, all volunteers are required to attend orientation and training. During orientation, the Volunteer Coordinator will give an overview of program guidelines and expectations. Volunteers are then provided “on-the-job” training at their assigned branch or department prior to the start of service.
