About Our Volunteer Program

The volunteer program of London Public Library was created to support the value-added services that are vital to our community. Our volunteer program helps strengthen people and neighbourhoods by creating connections that enrich lives, inspire discovery, foster creativity, and expand possibilities.

We work with over 400 volunteers annually. These individuals believe in the value of the Library and want to contribute to their community.

We look for people who are:

  • passionate about continuous learning,
  • embrace working in a diverse and inclusive environment, and
  • who respect and provide excellent customer services.

Throughout the year we have opportunities for volunteers at many of our branches. We welcome you to join us at our monthly information session to learn about our programs and get access to our online application form.  

Please note:

  • Not all positions are available at every library location or at every time of the year.
  • Some volunteers assist with more than one volunteer position.
  • It may take up to 1 month for an interview as we interview for highest priority needs first
  • Shelving and organizing books are not volunteer positions at the Library. It is a paid staff position. You can ask at your local library branch for more information about this staff position.
  • The London Public Library will provide accommodation to applicants with disabilities in its recruitment processes upon request consistent with the Ontario Human Rights Code and the AODA regulations.
