The Friends of the Jefferson Parish Library also welcome volunteers. They can be contacted at (504) 455-2665 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How do I apply?
Interested parties need to fill out a volunteer application and return it to any branch location or regional library. Adults (18 and over) will be required to show valid photo ID when turning in an application.
Once the application has been returned, it will be sent to the Volunteer Coordinator at Library Headquarters. It can take up to 5-7 days for the Coordinator to receive the application.
The Volunteer Coordinator will contact the applicant to discuss volunteering and potential placement.
While we will try our best to accommodate volunteers, we do not guarantee the ability to complete all hours required for school if the applicant does not allow a reasonable amount of time for completion.
When should I apply?
The majority of JPL branches will accept volunteers year round as long as there is a need.
Due to the high volume of applicants, both the East and West Bank Regional libraries require volunteers to submit applications by an assigned deadline for each season. The deadlines are as follows:
East Bank Regional
West Bank Regional
For more information, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (504) 849-8839.
