The Council Bluffs Public Library relies on the generous support of volunteers in its efforts to best serve the community. Volunteers assist in running the Friends of the Library Bookstore, shelving books, delivering books to patrons homebound, assisting with events & programs, and much more!

Please complete this form, and if your interests match a current opening, our Volunteer Coordinator or library staff member will get in touch with you. Otherwise, your application will be kept on file, and you will be considered for future openings.

If you would like to know more about volunteering for the book store or book sale, please contact the Friends of the Library.

Teens interested in volunteering with Teen Central can find more information here. If you are a teen, please have a parent or guardian sign the Teen Volunteer Parental Permission Form and return it to the library.

Thank you for supporting the Council Bluffs Public Library!
