Grafton Public Library


The Grafton Public Library welcomes volunteer applications year round from applicants ages 14 and up. Volunteers work 1-3 hours per week and assist with various Library tasks under staff supervision. Tasks may include, but are not limited to:

  • Home delivery to housebound patrons (must have valid Driver’s license)
  • Shelving, shelf-reading
  • Helping with incoming and outgoing materials delivery
  • Clerical tasks such as photocopying, paper trimming, craft preparation, labeling, book covering, and stamping
  • Summer reading program
  • Gardening and seasonal grounds-keeping (recycling, raking, watering, weeding, mulching)
  • Programming, including presenting programs to the public
  • Assisting with crafts and storytelling during Grafton Celebrates the Holidays and the Spring Egg Hunt

Please consider joining the Friends of the Grafton Public Library for additional volunteer opportunities!

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.
