The Clay Center Carnegie Library welcomes volunteers in the library. Volunteers are expected to conform to all policies and rules of the Library, including patron privacy policies. Volunteers may be used for special events, projects, or other events, and to assist staff if needed. Volunteer services will supplement but not replace regular services, and volunteers will not be used in place of hiring needed staff. All volunteers are required to have a Volunteer Application on file with the library. The library does not accept court ordered volunteers.
