Volunteer Opportunities

Adult Volunteer Openings:

Are you an organized and enterprising person who enjoys getting things done?  Do you like variety?  Can you spare two to four hours per week to help at Arvada Library?

JCPL’s Diversity & Inclusion team, housed at Arvada Library, is looking for a volunteer to be their boots on the ground and help them with a variety of tasks that keep the team organized.  Interested?  Contact Debby Ridgell at debby.ridgell@jeffcolibrary.org or 303-275-2212 for details.

Teen Volunteer Openings:

Teen Volunteer Opportunities for Summer

This summer, Jeffco Library has a limited number of virtual volunteer opportunities for teens in grades 7-12.  Virtual volunteers help connect teens to their next great books and promote the 2021 Summer Challenge, “Wild Ideas.” 

Virtual volunteer tasks include:

  • Writing book reviews
  • Curating book lists
  • Creating book trailers and Summer Challenge promo videos
  • Leveraging personal contacts and social media networks in promoting Wild Ideas
  • Assisting with online programs including Coding and Robotics Camps, and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons

With the exception of the online program assistance role, scheduling is flexible, so these opportunities are particularly appropriate for busy teens who have a lot going on during the summer months.  Applicants should be huge readers, strong writers, eager to persuade others to participate in Wild Ideas, comfortable working independently, and technically savvy.

If you love to read and are looking for a way to earn those community service hours required by your school or community organization, this might be the perfect opportunity for you.  Complete the “standard” online volunteer application – we will accept applications until all positions are filled.  Volunteer training will be provided virtually in May.  Questions?  Contact Debby Ridgell at debby.ridgell@jeffcolibrary.org or 303-275-2212.
