We invite you to work side by side with library staff in your Sarasota County Library System.

Libraries merely exist with public funding, but we truly shine with the help of our volunteers. The need for volunteers throughout the library system is ongoing as the library evolves. There's always something new at the library--may the next new volunteer be YOU!
