Volunteer at the Lilly-Washington Public Library
The Lilly-Washington Public Library welcomes volunteers to help with different tasks, including assisting with or providing storytime and Summerquest programs. Volunteers are also needed to help with library operations, including shelving books, cleaning, and other tasks as needed.
Volunteers should reach out to the Lilly-Washington Public Library director to discuss how to help the library.
All volunteers aged 18 and older will be required to complete PATCH and Child Abuse History Clearance background checks. These clearances are free to volunteers and can be completed on the PATCH Website and the PA Child Welfare Website. In some cases, volunteers may not need to obtain federal background checks that require fingerprinting.
