The Concord Free Public Library has many talented, hardworking volunteers. These include:
- volunteering at the Library directly
- volunteering with the Friends of the Library
Volunteering at the Library
Our volunteers help the staff with many varied tasks at both the Main Library and the Fowler Branch. New volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please stop by at the Reference Desk in the Main Library to complete a Volunteer Application Form. The Town of Concord conducts background checks for all volunteer applicants that are 18 years old or older. If you are 18 or older, please visit either the Main Library or Fowler Branch to complete the CORI background check consent form and to show your state identification. Once the application and background checks are complete, a member of the library staff will meet with the new volunteer to set up a schedule. Volunteer schedules can be very flexible.
Call 978-318-3347 during library hours to learn more about volunteering at the Concord Free Public Library.
Volunteering with the Friends
The Friends of the Concord Free Public Library encourage engagement through our programs, including our Music, Film, Poetry and Author Series, as well as our two annual book sale and Miller Award. Details on each of these can be found here (Friends page link). A group of dedicated volunteers called the Sorters work weekly to filter through all of books donated to the library to prepare them for the Book Sales. [Check back here to sign up for book sale help]
