 The Hall County Library System welcomes volunteer workers. Volunteers are used to benefit the library system. Volunteers must be at least fourteen years of age. They may assist staff to meet patron needs by performing routine tasks that will allow paid personnel to delegate more time to specialized activities. The library system is not obligated to accept every volunteer request to work. Volunteers will be treated like paid library staff. They are required to complete a Volunteer Job Application. They may be required to participate in a formal training process and undergo criminal background screening. They will be assigned areas and job duties by library staff. Volunteers may not be assigned to work under an immediate family member, nor may they volunteer in the same department as an immediate family member. Volunteers are expected to abide by the rules, regulations, and guidelines established by the library system. Volunteers whose activity disrupts library operations will be suspended. The Hall County Library System does not accept workers performing court –ordered community service as volunteers.
