Volunteer

We appreciate everyone who volunteers their time and talents at the Pewaukee Public Library. Volunteer opportunities are periodically available and if you are interested in volunteering, please check this space for a description of the positions that are currently available and how to apply for them.

We are currently looking for:

Picture Book Curators
Help keep our beloved picture book collection lovable! We need your help in caring for our picture book collection: identifying those books that have been “loved to death” and need to be repaired or replaced. You will be taking books off low shelves, examining each for damage, and either returning them to the shelf, doing small repairs yourself, or placing them on a cart for further attention. We will train you how to judge the worthiness of the books and how to do simple repairs.

Because our mornings are busy with programs for young children, we recommend that you volunteer in the afternoon or evening. This is a great way to give back to the community and/or earn service hours. Contact Jenny Wegener, Head of Youth Services, if you have questions.  Interested? Complete the Volunteer Application form, sign the waiver on the second page  of the Volunteer Policy and return them to the Youth Services Desk in the Children’s Library.

Shelf Elves
Help us keep our material shelves in good order by maintaining sections. Choose your area – Children’s, Young Adult, Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction.  Determine the time you want to spend on housekeeping tasks of dusting, positioning, and making sure books are in order and presentable. This position keeps you on your toes. You are required to move books to a cart and back to the shelves and to use a step stool as needed. Interested? Complete the Volunteer Application form, sign the waiver on the second page  of the Volunteer Policy and return them to the desk in the area of the library you’d like to maintain!
