Libraries and volunteer opportunities | Spokane, WA

What You Can Do
  • Support our libraries—both in school and the community.  Use the free, unlimited resources available in public libraries.

  • Take your children to a library.  Our libraries host many reading programs and other activities to entertain your kids while you browse the shelves and catch up on your own reading list during the break.  Have your younger children check out books for you to read with them.
  • Volunteer to help in a library:  
    • Work at the information desk, giving directions and helping patrons locate books.  
    • Repair and clean books, and rewind tapes.
    • Shelve books.
    • Deliver books to seniors and the home-bound.
    • Assist with the children’s story hour, including preparing materials.  
    • Provide clerical help.
  • Join the Friends of the Library association, which helps with book sales and special events.  
  • Attend the Spokane County Library Board meetings, the 3rd Tuesday, 4 p.m. in the Argonne Library public meeting room.
