Volunteer Opportunities

People interested in volunteering to help our Lorain Public Library System are encouraged to consider one or more of the following opportunities.

Join the Friends Group of Your Local Library.

The purpose of Friends of the Library groups is to support our libraries through volunteering or fundraising through fund raising efforts. To join, pick up a membership form at your local Lorain Public Library System Library. Memberships forms are also available online:

Become An Obituary Index Helper.

Would you like to get involved as a volunteer who adds local obituary information to the Ohio Obituary Index?  Do you have Internet access at home?  If you have answered yes to both of these questions, we would be glad to hear from you.  Contact the Main Library Public Services Coordinator for details at lor5@lpls.info.


Join a Teen Volunteer Group.

Sixth through 12th graders are invited to join a teen volunteer group. Call your local Lorain Public Library System Library for more information or go to the online events calendar and look for relevant programs and events to attend.
