Volunteer Opportunities


Thank you for thinking of Ventura County Library!

CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS

  • Volunteers assist students with their homework projects at Homework Centers at many of our libraries. Each center has a Homework Supervisor who will train and assist volunteers.
  • Each year, thousands of children participate in the Summer Reading Program. The Library recruits young adults, ages 13 to 17, May - June, to assist children in signing up for the Summer Reading Program.

READING INSTRUCTION FOR ADULTS

  • The Library tutors adults in reading. No prior teaching experience is required, as the Library will train you. If you are interested in being a student or tutor, visit our Adult Literacy Program web pages.

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY

  • The Ventura County Library has nine Friends groups helping to support the library with fund-raising activities such as book sales. All money earned by the Friends is given to the libraries. Visit the Friends of the Library page for the name of the contact person for your local Friends group.
