Frequently Asked Questions

How old do I have to be to volunteer?

Volunteers must be 13 years old or older. Volunteers that are younger but are members of the National Junior Honor Society may request permission to volunteer.

Yes. Orientation is required for all volunteer shifts.

What if I can't attend an upcoming orientation?

Please e-mail volunteer@budalibrary.org.

What if I need hours for court-ordered community service?

We accept court-ordered community service for class C misdemeanors or less for minors under 18 years old. If you need court-ordered community service, please e-mail volunteer@budalibrary.org prior to attending orientation.

How many hours can I expect to get and how quickly?

This can depend on what we've got going on at the library! Volunteers may request 2 shifts per week. Shifts vary between 1-2.5 hours long. The library hosts many larger events that do give volunteers the opportunity to get 3-4 hours in an afternoon but this is dependent on our event calendar.
