Volunteerism exemplifies the true spirit of the Orange community, and we thrive through the personal contributions made by our volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are available in nearly every area of the Library (see listing below).
If you wish to volunteer, please complete and submit the online Volunteer Application. If you have any questions, please contact the Library Volunteer Coordinator at (714) 288-2569.
Minimum Age and Characteristics
Volunteers must be 16 or older, with the exception of teen volunteers who may begin volunteering at age 13. Ideal volunteers will have a professional appearance, be customer service oriented, follow directions easily, and possess a warm, friendly and positive attitude.
All volunteers are required to go through a background process, which may include fingerprinting and/or drug screening, before they can volunteer with the Orange Public Library. After you turn in your application and are interviewed for a volunteer position you will be given authorization forms. This process is paid for by the City of Orange. Please note that City policy does not allow the library to accept court-referred volunteers.
If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact the Library Volunteer Coordinator. Please note that per City policy we are unable to accept court referrals for our volunteer program.
Please indicate which volunteer opportunities you are most interested in on the volunteer application. You may select more than one.
Teens looking to build leadership skills and serve their community are invited to apply for the Teen Advisory Group. Members will meet monthly to work on projects and programs of their choosing. Learn how an advisory group functions, manages budgets and achieves goals. TAG membership qualifies as community service and looks great on a resumé. Youth must be enrolled in grades 7-12 and aged 13-18.
