Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Round Rock Public Library. At the present time we do not have any volunteer opportunities available. Please check back at a later time.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Round Rock Public Library! The Library has volunteer opportunities for adults and teens (ages 13 and older). A minimum commitment of 30 hours per year is required for most positions. Volunteers typically work 2 to 4 hours per week.

For more information on volunteering in general, or if you have a specialized skill that you think the library can use, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator by e-mail or call (512) 218-3279.

A criminal background check will be performed on all adult volunteers 18 years of age or older.

The Library cannot accommodate Community Service Restitution requirements. Please contact the Round Rock Volunteer Center.

Volunteering Process

Orientation

We will briefly discuss the volunteer program, review the Library Volunteer Handbook, take care of basic paperwork, administer a brief aptitude test, and take a tour of the library. Parents of teen volunteers are welcome to attend. Additional orientations may be added during the summer months.

Orientations are held twice a month:

  • second Monday of each month at 6 p.m., and
  • third Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.

Please check the library calendar for added or canceled dates and times.

Volunteer Agreement

A signed form is required for all volunteers. Parents of teens also need to sign the Library Volunteer Agreement.

Interviews

Adult volunteers can contact the Volunteer Coordinator to schedule an interview. We like to get to know you, and the interview helps us determine the best fit for your volunteer experience.

Letter of Recommendation

Teen volunteers need to bring a letter of recommendation to the orientation. If the teen does not have the letter of recommendation at orientation they must have it by the first training session.
