A list of volunteering opportunities at the San Francisco public libraries is available here.

Volunteers over the age of 18 will need to contact the Volunteer Program Coordinator for information. The application process may take up to one month.

Volunteers under the age of 18 will need to complete the Youth Volunteer Application and return it to the designated library. Youths can also volunteer for the KidPower / Summer Reading program from June to August by contacting their local library branch.
