Volunteering

The Watertown Free Public Library Volunteer Program provides public service opportunities to members of our community. Volunteers provide valuable assistance on projects that may be otherwise neglected because of budgetary limitations. Volunteers generally provide support services to paid staff; work on special projects; or assist with the Library Building Committee Book Store. We will do our best to match applicants with a volunteer position. However, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be selected to volunteer at the library.

To Apply

To apply for a volunteer position, please read our volunteer policy and fill out the volunteer application. Alternatively, print out a paper application, fill it out, and return it to the library. Volunteers age 18 and under will need to fill out a permission form.

Armenian Language Collection Development

We need someone with native fluency in Armenian to help us develop our Armenian language book collection. If you love literature, you can help our buyers select materials to add to the collection, fill out cataloging forms with pertinent information about the books, and possibly do the data entry required to get these books represented in our catalog. We are also looking for someone who can help us review and revise an Armenian Driver's Manual. 

Requirements: Fluency in Armenian, interest in books/literature. 

Bonus: Basic data entry (computer) skills, knowledge of Armenian authors and literature.
