The mission of Volunteer Services is to invest in our community by providing a dynamic volunteer program with engaging and enriching experiences that strengthens and supports the commitment of the Austin Public Library. In 2015, our volunteers donated over 21,000 hours of their time and expertise to help connect the community to our library programs and services. Volunteers are an integral part of our team and are a valuable asset to our Library system. With volunteer positions to match most schedules and interests, we are confident you will find the Austin Public Library a highly rewarding place to serve.

At this time, the Austin Public Library does not offer service projects for group volunteers. The following organizations offer volunteer opportunities for groups:
