Volunteers are a tremendously important part of Westlake Porter Public Library. Each year approximately 10,000 hours of volunteer work are done at the library.
We welcome your involvement and commitment and offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to match your interests, skills, and availability.
To volunteer, stop by the library to pick up an application or download it here. Return it to the library in person or via fax.
Volunteering for the Friends of Porter Public Library may require membership in Friends.
WPPL accepts applications for energetic and creative teens to help with a variety of tasks and programs around the Library during two sessions every year: the summer and the academic school year. As space permits, we do accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the school year.
This is a great opportunity for teens in grades 8-12 to give back to their community, get service hours in a fun, relaxed environment, and boost their college applications!
We are no longer accepting applications to volunteer during the 2022-2023 school year. Applications for our Summer 2023 volunteer session will be available starting May 1. Contact Youth Services with questions.
Barb Gauthier received the Myrna Chelko Volunteer Award at a special ceremony preceding the Board of Trustees meeting on April 20. The award is given annually to the volunteer who best demonstrates the spirit of volunteerism exemplified by its namesake, Myrna Chelko.
Volunteer opportunities within the Youth Services Department are available for those ages 14+ with developmental or intellectual disabilities. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested, download an application and return it to the library.
