Volunteering at the library is a great way to build your skills and give back to the community. We will work with you to find a volunteer opportunity that meets your needs.

Court Ordered Community Service 

Teens age 14 through their senior year of high school enrolled in a Skokie school district who have been ordered to complete at least 20 hours of volunteer service may be able to do them at the library. Please call or email to schedule an interview appointment with the volunteer coordinator (required). Persons under the age of 18 also require a parent or guardian signature to perform service hours at the library.


In addition to our open volunteer opportunities, we have a number of special programs that need volunteers. Please inquire at the library.
