Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of Chattahoochee Valley Libraries!

Thank you for your interest in the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries’ volunteer program. Here at Chattahoochee Valley Libraries, we are thrilled to offer a volunteer program that allows individuals, ages 12 and older, the opportunity to gain valuable service skills, while making a difference in the lives of others. Volunteer opportunities are available whether you are seeking required volunteer hours, court appointed community service, or just plain interested in gaining work experience and giving back to the community.


Step 1- Apply

We are slowly welcoming volunteers back in to our branches. Please see current volunteer opportunities below.

 

SIDEWALK SALE

If you love books and people, this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you!  Volunteers are needed on April 16th and 17th to help with book sale set up and strike. Morning and afternoon shifts are available. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older and able to bend, stoop, and lift/push up to 30lbs. Don’t miss out on this great volunteer opportunity-sign up today!

 

RECORDING STUDIOongoing

Volunteer your voice! In partnership with the Georgia Radio Reading Service (GaRRS), we are seeking volunteer readers to record books for statewide broadcast to the visually-impaired and otherwise print disabled community.  Conveniently located at the Columbus Public Library (3000 Macon Road), our Country’s Barbecue Recording Studio offers user friendly software and equipment. This unique volunteer opportunity also provides flexible scheduling to include an option to record from home. We would not be able to serve the GaRRS listening audience without our dedicated volunteers. Sign up and help us continue to provide quality programs that inform, connect, and entertain individuals who are unable to read themselves.


Step 2- Complete required forms

Adult volunteers (over 18 years of age) must submit a completed Background Release Form in order for applications to be considered.

Teen volunteers must submit a completed Parent Release Form in order for applications to be considered.

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.
