Volunteer Rights
Volunteers are a valuable resource to the Library and have the right to be treated with respect and fairness, to be given meaningful assignments, to be treated as co-workers and to be recognized for their work. In return, volunteers agree to perform their duties to the best of their abilities and to remain loyal to the mission, values, goals and policies of the Library.
