It is the policy of the Ashville Free Library to encourage community-minded people to serve as volunteers. Library Volunteers:

  • Supplement the efforts of the Library Director
  • Serve to encourage citizens to become familiar with their library
  • Have an opportunity to feel personal satisfaction while performing a vital service for the community

A volunteer shall be considered as any individual who assists the Director without remuneration.

Volunteers must be at 18 years of age.

Volunteers who apply to work will be expected to fill out a volunteer information/application sheet which will be kept on file. Candidates will be accepted only after a successful interview with the Library Director.

Volunteers work under the direction of the Library Director. The Library Director is authorized to create or amend procedures to support this policy.

Volunteers will inform the Library Director if they will not be able to fulfill their duties on a particular day or evening as soon as possible. If possible, the volunteer will make an attempt to find another volunteer to cover their designated time slot.

Volunteers must have a library card and be in good standing with the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System.

Volunteers are expected to comply with all the policies of the Library.
