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 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.
