Volunteering at the Northern Cambria Public Library
The Northern Cambria 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 Northern Cambria Public Library director to discuss how to help the library.
All volunteers 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.
Donating Items to the Library
Due to space limitations, items are not being accepted by Northern Cambria Public Library at this time.
Northern Cambria Public Library is able to fulfill its mission because of the support and generosity of our donors.
