Volunteer Opportunities

Chelmsford Volunteers - chelmsfordvolunteers.orgThe Library is happy to introduce a new volunteer website that attempts to "match" potential volunteers with volunteer opportunities -- www.chelmsfordvolunteers.org

The library offers a limited number of volunteer jobs for Adults and Teens. We maintain two email mailing lists of volunteers (one for teens and one for adults) to which we post volunteer opportunities as they arise. Kathy Cryan-Hicks coordinates the program for adults. Jen Petro-Roy, the library's teen services librarian, coordinates the teen volunteer program.

If you wish to have your name and email added to one of our volunteer mailing lists please print our volunteer application form [pdf] and return it to Jen Petro-Roy (if you are a teen) or to Kathy Cryan-Hicks (if you are an adult). Adult volunteers (over age 18) are required to fill out a CORI form.

Some of the work our volunteers do includes clerical work, helping to serve refreshments at receptions, taking photographs of library programs or helping with sound equipment at library concerts. Some of our volunteers facilitate programs.

Current programs facilitated by Library Volunteers are::eers:

Genealogy Club

Weekly & Monthly Conversation Circles

Writers Group

History Book group

If you have a special skill or interest that you would like to share on an ongoing basis, talk with us. To run a monthly program requires a very special volunteer, one who is qualified and willing to give a lot of time to research and prepare the program as well as be available to run the program. All volunteers (18 and over) must fill out CORI forms. They must also adhere to the state required "Conflict of Interest" law.

For more information on volunteer positions contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks at 978-256-5521, ext. 109, or email: kcryanhic@mvlc.org
