The Library Board and staff encourage individuals and groups to volunteer their time and efforts in the service of the Austin Memorial Library. In appreciation of volunteer services, the Library acknowledges the need to organize volunteer activities and provide for appropriate recognition befitting the benefit to the library and the communities it serves.
The library will perform a background check on each person. The background check will depend on whether the individual is approved or not for service at the library.
Annual recognition will be given based on the number of hours of service. This will include a listing of volunteer names in a newspaper release, a certificate of appreciation, and the addition of a book to the collection in each volunteer's name.
