Volunteer at the Library
The library always has room for more volunteers. Currently we have about one hundred volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please contact Jeanette Mercier
, circulation supervisor, at (509) 942-7454. All volunteers must pass a background check.
Volunteers can structure their hours as they wish and perform a variety of tasks:
- Working in the Friends of the Richland Public Library Book Room
- Delivering materials to Richland residents who are homebound
- Shelving books
- Searching for books
- Calling patrons whose holds have come in
Volunteers have different reasons for wanting to volunteer. Some have just moved to the area and want to keep busy or become more familiar with the library. Others want to give back to their community. Others just love books and libraries and want to be involved with them.
