Role of Volunteers

The purpose of Clermont County Public Library Volunteers Program is to provide individuals with the opportunity to work with paid library staff in enhancing public service to the community; serve as a method for area residents to become familiar with the library; and create opportunities for individuals to feel personal satisfaction while performing a valuable service in their community.

Selection of Volunteers

A volunteer is a person who performs tasks for the Clermont County Public Library without wages, benefits, or compensation (including travel expenses) of any kind. Volunteers are selected based upon their qualifications and the needs of the library at any given time. Volunteers are not employees and do not enjoy the same rights, privileges and responsibilities of an employee.

Job Training and Supervision

Volunteers will work with and be trained by a specific supervisor. Volunteers are expected to take directions from the supervisor who is responsible for their work, and may be removed at any time and for any reason by that supervisor.

Work Schedules

Volunteers will work during the hours when adequate supervision is available. Work schedules and specific time commitments will be arranged by each volunteer and his/her supervisor. Volunteers who cannot meet a scheduled work assignment will inform the designated supervisor in advance.
