The Lee County Library System & Volunteers

Together, Serving the Community


The Lee County Library System recognizes that volunteers, working in conjunction with employed staff, are essential to the productivity, efficiency and cost effectiveness of library services. The library system encourages Individuals to become partners in public service by volunteering within the organization. A volunteer’s contribution to the library system goes far beyond the actual work performed. Volunteers enhance the services that the library system provides to the public. By working together, volunteers and library staff accomplish great things.

Volunteer and Change Lives
 
The library system has embarked on a grant project to make a difference in the lives of older adults in our community. The Community Conversations Project trains volunteers to provide library programs for older adults in assisted living facilities, adult daycare programs, and at congregate meal sites. The project exposes elders to stimulating ideas and thoughtful discussion. We are looking for adult volunteers of all ages. Click here for more information.
