Volunteering Information

Our volunteers…

  • extend library services by assisting in the library with the check in, check out and shelving of books.
  • plan and set library policy by their contribution to the Library Board. We could not operate without our board.
  • raise additional funds for the library with projects like the popular used book sale through Friends of the Library.

If you are interested in joining the library volunteer team in any of these capacities, please contact the library at contact@smitherslibrary.ca or 250-847-3043.
