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 upcoming volunteer opportunities below.

 

Chattahoochee Valley Libraries is seeking adult male volunteers ages 21 years and older with an interest in literacy and male youth mentorship. Volunteers must be available to facilitate virtual reading sessions during school lunch hours, once or twice a week, for a five consecutive week period: January 25, 2021 –February 26, 2021. Volunteers will read or book-talk visually appealing, fun, age appropriate books, both fiction and non-fiction with male youth at select elementary schools. Pre-selected books and program training will be provided to all volunteers. All applicants must complete an online volunteer application, consent to a criminal background check, and have reliable transportation.

Sign up today to become a role model of literacy!


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.
