Welcome, Volunteers!

As a volunteer at the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library, you are joining men and women, from teens to senior citizens, who share their time and talents as members of our team. Volunteering means different things to different people.

Volunteers can make a difference in any agency. We are committed to the development of volunteer positions that are satisfying to the individual and beneficial to the overall mission of the Library. Our success depends on the teamwork involving the coordinator, the volunteer and the staff, working together in pursuit of a common goal.

Volunteering will offer you a personal opportunity for growth and fulfillment. Volunteering at the Library allows you to step outside of your daily routine and enter a new and challenging environment. Regardless of your lifestyle, volunteering can enrich your life. Rewards of volunteering include friendship, recognition, education and genuine satisfaction in a job well done.
