Many people assist the Library as volunteers, and the Library is very grateful for their help. Volunteers perform a number of activities, including helping with shelving, assisting at children's activities or adult programs, offering tours of the library, preparing new materials for the shelves and more. You can find an option that suits your style and the time you have available. To get an idea of our areas of need, see the snapshot of positions below.  Some positions may not be available at a particular time. Library volunteers may be required to pass background checked before receiving an assignment. 

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with the Billings Public Library! We are currently on summer vacation with this process and will start taking new applications again in August 2023. We look forward to hearing from you then!
