Our volunteers contribute their unique talents, skills and knowledge to enhance Sno-Isle Libraries' goal to be a community doorway to reading, resources and lifelong learning.
Whether it's a short-term project or a regularly scheduled task, volunteers work to enrich our community libraries programs and services throughout Snohomish and Island counties.
Note: Volunteers age 13 and under must be supervised by a parent/guardian.
