It’s your community, your library. Volunteer.

The Library’s mission is to provide the Cedar Mill/Bethany community an open door to the joy of reading and lifelong learning. For over 40 years this mission has been fulfilled by thousands of generous, dedicated volunteers. You can be one of them.


For teen opportunities, including Summer Reading volunteering, please visit our Teen Volunteers page.

What’s your talent? Share it.

Volunteers from the community work for every department in the library – labeling, sorting, shelving, check-in, tech help, craft help, and outreach. At Second Edition Resale volunteers sort, clean, price and display merchandise; they welcome and help customers. Most jobs require volunteers who are 14 or older and can commit to a two-hour shift at least once a week for six months. Where do you want to help?

Volunteers in Action

Alpacas with Impact!

It takes a community to build a library. Volunteers and donors--and alpacas!--make the difference.
