Volunteer Application


Volunteering for Hartford Public Library can be a rewarding and exciting experience. Volunteer time, energy and goodwill are invaluable assets to the Library because volunteerism enhances the Library’s ability to fulfill its mission by providing opportunities for direct public participation in library services. Volunteerism also strengthens and deepens the Library’s relationships throughout the community. Volunteer opportunities offer citizens a way to contribute to the community, fulfill personal goals, achieve a sense of satisfaction, and learn more about the Library.

Individuals interested in volunteering at the Library must fill out an application and a waiver form. Candidates will be accepted based on the Library’s project and programmatic needs matched with the candidates’ qualifications to meet those requirements as determined during the selection process. The Library may not accept every volunteer application. A background check, and where applicable, reference checking are required before any candidate can begin an assignment.
