I need. I value. I support.

Volunteer/Advocate

Library advocates are the voice of public libraries. Join other library advocates and volunteers to ensure
our library legacy remains vibrant, relevant, and fully funded.

Volunteer – Take Action at Your Library!

The ACPL Foundation is developing a volunteer network. Our main volunteers are board members but we need help in other areas too.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Serve as a board member. Check our About Us page for vacancies.
  • Volunteer at an event or for a project.
  • Host a “friendraiser” with your circle of family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors to build more support for libraries. Ask us for more information.
  • Share your professional skills with the ACPL Foundation.
  • Volunteer for the ACPL Foundation’s free tax preparation program.

Advocate – I Love My Library!

Library advocacy doesn’t need to be complicated. Spread the word by telling your community why you value the library.

Advocacy Opportunities:

  • Keep informed. Make sure you’re on our mailing/newsletter list so you get the most up-to-date information about the library.
  • Talk to public officials. Tell your county commissioners and city councilors why the library is important.
  • Write a Letter to the Editor telling our community why you love the library.
  • Support candidates who support the library.
  • Assist in raising funds to raise awareness and build support for the library.
