Volunteering at Baltimore County Public Library Banner





Volunteers Are an Important Part of BCPL



Volunteers must be at least 14 years old or in the 8th grade. Exceptions may be made for students under age 14 who work as Summer @ Your Library volunteers. We accept volunteers for these functions:

  • TWorking with a student in the libraryhe Friends: Branch Support Groups are important volunteer support groups for Baltimore County Public Library. They provide community outreach for specific branches and advocacy for their neighborhood branch. They organize fundraising events and bring additional talent, expertise, and financial support to their community branch. Not all branches have friends groups.  For more information or to get involved, contact your local Friends: Branch Support Group.

  • Summer @ Your Library volunteers are students entering grades 7 to 10 in fall 2017.  They help promote the program, sign-up children and give out stickers and prizes, and more. 

    Our branches are no longer accepting applications to be a 2017 Summer @ Your Library volunteer. Check back with us in spring 2018.

  • Branch-specific assignments are sometimes available at individual branches. To verify that a volunteer opportunity is available, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at the library branch where you would like to work. The branches cannot guarantee that there will be work available at all times and are under no obligation to accept volunteers.
