Apply today!
Adult volunteers (over 18 years of age) must submit the Background Release form in order for applications to be considered complete.

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.
