Volunteers are an important part of the Newburyport Public Library.

Volunteer applicants are invited to get more information from the Volunteer Program Coordinator at 978-465-4428 x224.

Volunteers complete an application and a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) check through the Massachusetts CHSB. This CORI check is managed by the library and is free for applicants.

A mutually determined scope of work, duration, and daily/weekly assigned time is determined by the volunteer coordinator prior to appointment. Then, the volunteer participates in an orientation and training session prior to beginning the Volunteer Program.

All volunteer hours for the library must be tracked and reported to a state library agency. Volunteering assignments involve tasks that do not otherwise fall under the responsibility of paid staff members.

For more information, contact the Volunteer Program Coordinator at 978–465–4428 x224.

The Library will be closed on Saturday, May 27, and Monday, May 29, in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. We will reopen on Tuesday, May 30, at 9 AM.
