We are truly grateful for your interest in volunteering! Please note that due to COVID-19 we are placing returning volunteers and a limited number of new volunteers at this time. This includes youth and adult volunteers who served in 2019-2020. We are accepting all new applications and will confirm availability for volunteer orientations. All volunteers are asked to complete, sign, get a parent/guardian signature (if under age 18) and return a Volunteer Application.
Volunteer projects are assigned after orientation is completed and can include 1-2 hour shifts assisting with clerical tasks, shelving materials, providing crowd control at programs, serving with the Friends of the Library and providing subject matter expertise for a library program. Please be sure to read, review and ask any questions about the Volunteer Handbook Revised 2021 at orientation.
Some branches have Teen Advisory Boards (TAB) made up of teen volunteers who collaborate on programs and brainstorm ideas for youth programming at the library. Contact your Youth Services Librarian or Volunteer Services to learn more about opportunities.
We do not have any group or virtual volunteer opportunities, but please review organizations listed on www.handsonatlanta.org that need assistance at this time.
Application for Volunteer Service- can be submitted to the Volunteer Services Office of the Fulton County Library System by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), mail (1 Margaret Mitchell Square, 30303), fax (404-612-0534) or dropped off at any of our 33 open branch locations.
If you need to complete community service for or in anticipation of court, lawyer, employment or school requirements, you must contact Volunteer Services at 404-613-0125 to discuss additional paperwork that is needed. Please note we do not accept all charges and we cannot guarantee hours can be completed in the allotted time frame. Please start early, so we can try to best assist you.
