Step 3- Interview/Orientation

Before volunteering with Chattahoochee Valley Libraries, all volunteers are required to attend orientation and training with the Volunteer Coordinator. The Volunteer Coordinator will give a brief tour showing volunteers where to sign-in and out and where to keep his or her name badge and belongings. Volunteers are then given “on-the-job” training in their assigned branch or department.
