Volunteer at the Library

The library always has room for more volunteers. Currently we have about one hundred volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please contact Lisa Adams at 509 942-7678. All volunteers must pass a background check.


Volunteers can structure their hours as they wish and perform a variety of tasks:

  • Working in the Friends of the Richland Public Library Book Room
  • Help with Children’s, Teen or STEAM Programs
  • Shelving books
  • Searching for books
  • Cleaning projects

Why Volunteer

Volunteers have different reasons for wanting to volunteer. Some have just moved to the area and want to keep busy or become more familiar with the library. Others want to give back to their community. Others just love books and libraries and want to be involved with them.
