Volunteers in no way replace or do the jobs of permanent part time or full time staff. A Library cannot be run by volunteers, nor can it run without volunteers. Your help is needed, and volunteering at the Library is a great way to give back to the community!

We make every effort to match interests to tasks. Volunteers may be restricted to tasks and work hours by age. Volunteers over the age of 18 are subject to a CORI background check. Volunteers between ages 10-14 are accepted on a conditional basis and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

Complete an application online at graftonlibrary.org/volunteer, or stop in to pick up an application. For more details about the volunteer program, please contact Susan Leto, Volunteer Coordinator, at 508-839-4649 x1108 or by email at graftonlibrary.ma@gmail.com
