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 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

Fall 2019 Volunteer Opportunities

We are no longer accepting applications for fall volunteer opportunities (September 2019-December 2019).

Recording Studio Volunteer Opportunities

In partnership with the Georgia Radio Reading Service (GaRRS), we are seeking volunteer readers to record printed materials for individuals who are visually-impaired or otherwise print-impaired.  Learn more here on how you can volunteer your voice to help inform, connect, and entertain.

Muscogee County Friends of Libraries Book Store Volunteer Opportunities

We are currently recruiting adult volunteers (18+) who are able to work weekly two hour shifts in the Muscogee County Friends of Libraries Bookstore.  If you love books AND people, this is the perfect place for you! Bookstore volunteer duties include: welcome and greet patrons; assist patrons with book selections; calculate total sales, collect money and make appropriate change; use a credit card terminal; bag purchases; accept and sort incoming book donations; shelve and organize books as necessary. Apply today!


We will begin accepting applications for GUYS READ beginning September 2, 2019. Please continue to check back for updates.


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.
