Specific volunteer positions will be posted here as they arise. If you would like to submit an application to volunteer for a specific role, or to be kept on file for future positions, please complete the form below. Volunteer applications will be kept for one year.
All volunteers require a criminal record check with a vulnerable sector screening.
Volunteer Positions Available
Teen Advisory Group (TAG):
TAG membership is open to young adults 14-18. Our TAG members help the library create an atmosphere to cultivate the love of reading and provide library-related services to teens in a fun and friendly environment. TAG members attend monthly meetings to plan activities and special projects that increase teen awareness of the library, inform teens of resources available to them in the library and actively involve teens in the planning and implementing of library programs for their age group. All TAG members are expected to make a special effort to attend meetings, programs and special events organized by TAG.
Teen Reviewer positions are open to young adults 14-18. Teen Reviewers earn two volunteer hours for each approved review of a book, movie, or video game. Reviews may be used by the library on our website, in-house (flyers/signs) or on special reader’s advisory flyers/bookmarks.
The Friends of the Library Group is looking for new volunteers to help out at the used bookstore, The Book Cellar, in the lower level of the Midland Public Library. Shifts are typically 2-3 hours, in either a morning or afternoon from Monday through Saturday. If you are interested and could work such a shift either weekly or bi-weekly, please let us know. We’d love to have you join the team!
Teen volunteers looking for high school volunteer hours are welcome to help out as well!
