Future Volunteer Opportunities

With an overwhelming response from the community, London Public Library will be able to meet its current volunteer needs for the fall.

We are not accepting any further applications at this time.

We expect to reopen on November 1st with winter opportunities and an invitation to apply.

If you have applied over the last few weeks, and have not yet received a response, we thank you for your patience. It is our intention to follow up with each applicant over the next month via phone or email.

About Our Volunteer Program

The volunteer program of London Public Library was created to support the value-added services that are vital to our community.  Our volunteer program helps strengthen people and neighbourhoods by creating connections that enrich lives, inspire discovery, foster creativity, and expand possibilities.

We work with over 400 volunteers annually.  These individuals believe in the value of the Library and want to contribute to their community.

 

We look for people who are:

  • passionate about continuous learning,
  • embrace working in a diverse and inclusive environment, and
  • who respect and provide excellent customer services.

Throughout the year we may have other opportunities for volunteers at many of our branches. We welcome you to review our volunteer position descriptions and fill out our online application.  

 

Please note:

  • All applicants who are accepted will be required to have a Police Information Check (PIC) or a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) successfully completed before they start.  The cost for this is currently $15.00
  • When submitting a volunteer application, please indicate the top one to three positions that interest you.
  • Not all positions are available at every library location or at every time of the year.
  • Some volunteers assist with more than one volunteer position.
  • It may take up to 3 months for an interview as we interview for highest priority needs first
  • Shelving and organizing books is not a volunteer position at the Library. It is a paid staff position. You can ask at your local library branch for more information about this staff position.
