Volunteering at the Library

Dozens of volunteers, from teens to seniors, are critical to the Library. They work in all the locations and perform vital jobs. As valued members of the Osterhout team, volunteers learn about our many programs and they’re constantly exposed to ideas, books, book lovers, and authors. It’s a great way to serve your community while meeting interesting people and expanding your horizons.

To Volunteer

To learn how you can get in on the action – and the benefits of volunteering at the Osterhout Free Library, please call us at 570.823.0156. Thank you for your support of the Osterhout Free Library.
