Volunteer Opportunities 
 
Are you looking to make a difference in our community, meet new people, and/or expand your library knowledge and skills? We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available at the Jack Russell Memorial Library. Those interested in volunteering should visit the library and pick up an application at the circulation desk or print an application here. All applicants will need to complete a volunteer application form, background check authorization form and a liability waiver form. The library will contact approved applicants when an appropriate opportunity becomes available. To learn more about volunteer opportunities at the library, please contact Ann, Library Volunteer Coordinator at 262-673-8240 or email volunteers@hartfordlibrary.org.
 
Volunteer opportunities include:
Shelving - sorting and returning library materials to their proper location
Cart preparation - sort and organize books on a cart that are to be shelved
Shelf reading - making sure books are in their proper location on the shelves
Mending or cleaning of library material
