The Morton Grove Public Library began as a volunteer organization over 80 years ago, and volunteers are still a vital part of Library operations. We welcome enthusiastic lifelong learners who want to serve their community by assisting Library staff with a wide range of services and programs.
MGPL welcomes all volunteers regardless of race, color, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, political ideology, age, creed, veteran status, religion, ancestry, national origin, language spoken, socioeconomic status, or the variations of any sensory, physical, or mental ability.
After we receive your application, the volunteer coordinator will contact you to set up an interview. Positions related to Homebound deliveries or Youth Services require a background check. Orientation and training are provided. See the full Volunteers policy.
Here are possible opportunities for adult volunteers:
- Program Assistant
