Adult Volunteers

We value adult volunteers and their dedication to connecting the community while supporting the mission of the Friends of Onondaga Free Library.

Volunteers are needed to assist the Friends with activities such as: book sales, annual membership drive, Festival of Trees and outreach events.

These volunteer opportunities are offered by the Friends, not library staff and may take place at the library or off site.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Friends, please contact them via email: oflfriends@gmail.com.
