Eastern Shore Public Library

Volunteer Opportunities

We rely on volunteers each day to keep the library running smoothly and to help with programs and special projects.

At Northampton Free Library there are a few volunteer opportunities available especially for children’s and adult programs. We could also use help in cleaning books and shelf checking. Please contact Barbrielle for more information at 757-414-0010.

To volunteer at Cape Charles Memorial Library, call 757-331-1300.

To volunteer at Chincoteague Island Library, contact Harriet Lonergan at 757-336-3460.

At the Main Library in Accomac volunteer tasks may include:

Putting library materials back on the shelf

Assisting the ESPL Friends group with their book sales in July and November

Gathering items that have been requested by patrons

Making sure library materials are in the right place and shelves are neat

Preparing library materials for circulation

Join other dedicated volunteers, meet interesting people, and help give back to the community. With our limited resources, our volunteers help to maintain the high quality of service that our patrons deserve. We offer flexible hours to suit your schedule!
