Become a volunteer!

We have many fun and meaningful ways you can volunteer your time and energy for the Hood River County Library District. We will provide training for each task.

The Hood River County Library District is seeking people who want to work in a rewarding environment. If you are looking for a way to spend those extra hours in your day, volunteering at the library is a great opportunity to help others and stay connected to one of the most resourceful organizations in our community. You would be a great addition to our team.

Each year, community members donate their time, skills and talents to Hood River County Library District’s locations and programs. In fiscal year 2018-19, they logged over 1,600 volunteer hours.
