If you are looking to make a contribution to your Library, we have some suggestions.

Adult volunteers work on a variety of projects at the St. Charles Public Library, including shelving, retrieving items from the book drops, pulling on-hold items, assisting selectors to maintain parts of the collection and special projects. Applications for adult volunteers are available online and at the Reference Desk. Please return completed applications to the Adult Services Desk, attention: David Kelsey.
