Volunteering at Baltimore County Public Library Banner







Working with a student in the libraryVolunteers are an important part of the Baltimore County Public Library system.

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 Reading Club volunteers.


We accept volunteers for these functions:


  • The 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 Reading Club volunteers are students entering grades 7 to 10 in the fall.  They help promote the Club, sign-up children for the Club, give out stickers and prizes, and more. Volunteer application packets can be picked up at the branch where the student wants to work from Monday, March 30, 2015 until Sunday, April 12, 2015.  There are a limited number of volunteer positions and they fill quickly.  Apply early!  Find out more...
  • 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.
