The library is part of Charlotte County library system. The county provides much of the funding for the library; however, the Friends contribute volunteer services and funds for resources that would not otherwise be possible through the County budgets alone.

“Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”


Volunteers can work in the library.  They assist patrons in the stacks, sort and shelve library materials, support staff with programs, and take on special projects.

The Friends Bookstore is completely managed and run by volunteers.  As a Bookstore volunteer you can have a weekly schedule or you can be on the substitute list to help. 

Volunteers in the library and the Bookstore must fill out the Charlotte County Volunteer application.  The library staff will submit the application and once approved, you will be notified to come in and be trained. 

The library depends on the volunteers to keep our library functioning!
