Volunteer with Queens Public Library

For over 30 years, Queens Public Library has benefited from the contributions of its volunteers. They are a daily inspiration to both customers and staff, while helping deliver great programming and services. We invite you to join our dedicated volunteer team, who have freely offered their skills and experience to benefit Queens youth, adults, and local residents.

At Queens Public Library, we believe that giving takes many forms. We offer several ways for individuals to become involved in serving the needs of the community. Our volunteer projects serve people of all ages, and you can choose opportunities based on personal interests, location, and availability. You may opt to interact directly with the public or stay behind the scenes to assist with the smooth operation of the Library.

Choose from:

  • Online / Virtual Service Projects
  • Adult Education Projects
  • Community Library Projects
  • Friends of Queens Public Library
  • One Day Events

Whatever your preference, our dedicated staff partners with volunteers to ensure that your service experience is positive, meaningful, and utilizes your talents to the fullest.

And of course, the greatest benefit of volunteering at the Library is knowing that you have made a real difference!
