How You Can Help
Looking to volunteer at your local library? We can help! The Mid-Columbia Libraries Volunteer Program provides a variety of ways for community members to give back at your libraries.
Special Events: We host a number of special programs in our branches throughout the year. Volunteers may help with set up and take down, assist with crafts and activities, help direct participants, and much more! Contact your local branch to see how you can help.
Summer Reading Challenge: Volunteers may assist with program registration, help prepare for guest entertainers and performers, assist with activities, and most importantly, help us get kids excited about reading! This program takes place June through August; it is a great opportunity for high school students, seniors, and anyone looking to get involved! Contact your local branch for more information.
Newspaper Indexer: Volunteers are needed to index obituaries from back issues of local newspapers at the Kennewick library. The task requires reading the newspapers in both microform and print formats and creating an alphabetical index by last name using Microsoft Excel. If you enjoy history and reading old newspapers, this could be for you!
