Volunteering at the Library

At this time, GSPL is not taking any volunteer applications.

Volunteers provide a unique and vital role in the delivery of library services in our community. We are committed to offering a variety of enticing volunteer opportunities for both adults and teens throughout our 13 locations.

Becoming a Volunteer

To become a volunteer at GSPL you will need to complete the following steps:

  • Review the Current Volunteer Opportunities for Adults or Teens to determine your area of interest
  • Complete an online application form or print an application and drop it off at your nearest location
  • Complete a brief intake interview determining if volunteering at GSPL is right for you
  • Receive an orientation including tour of the building, volunteer space, introduction to the staff, review of policies, procedures and health and safety basics
  • Receive additional job orientation and training from your in-branch volunteer coordinator related specifically to your volunteer role

Recognizing our Volunteers

Recognizing the contributions of our adult and teen volunteers is important to us - for without volunteers we would not be able to achieve all that we do!

VolunTeens will receive an official Letter of Reference upon completion of their placement at the library, and a confirmation of the total amount of time spent at the library if the hours are to count as part of the Community Service Hours requirement for high school graduation.

All Volunteers at Greater Sudbury Public Library will be recognized at an annual Thank You event.
