Current Volunteer Opportunities
At Frankfort Community Public Library, we are fortunate to have volunteers that are essential partners in many library projects that impact our community. Volunteering can be far more than simply doing a good deed. In fact, volunteering can be a great way to develop skills, learn more about career options, make friends, or even just shake up your routine. We value your involvement and offer a variety of opportunities to match your interests and skills.
