Ames Public Library values the incredible work our volunteers do for us. Annually, over 500 volunteers donate almost 17,000 hours of service to the Library. That level of support is vital to our success and our ability to meet our community’s needs.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we are currently not accepting applications for new volunteers at this time. Thank you so much for your interest in our volunteer program! As the Library slowly reintroduce services, stop back here to find future listings of volunteer opportunities. 

If you have questions about the volunteer program in general, please contact Volunteer Services at (515) 239-5646 ext. 5 or e-mail the Volunteer Coordinator at sbohlke@amespubliclibrary.org.
