Volunteer @ the Library


We accept volunteers aged 14+. 

Our volunteers are extremely important to the library, and play a crucial role in aiding the staff to fulfill our service commitment to the community. Some of the tasks that the volunteers undertake are: shelving returned items and assisting in the preparation of programs. As with most volunteer positions, applicants would need to have a recent Police Check.

If you have spare time, and would like to become a library volunteer, please submit fill out the volunteer form, below, or email us at volunteer@okotokslibrary.ca


Friends of the Library

The "Friends of the Okotoks Public Library" is a growing group of dedicated volunteers. Sharon Hudspeth is the president of this group, and is the main contact person for the Friends.

The inspiration behind this group is to raise extra funding for projects in the Library, and to provide the Library with a willing band of folk to call upon when need be to help at events or programs.

If you are interested in joining the Friends, kindly contact Library Director, Sarah Gillie at 403-938-2220 ext. 4, and she will pass on your information to Sharon.

Dog Volunteers

Is your dog totally paw-some with kids? We are in need of volunteers and their dogs to help us launch a special literacy program for kids in the new year. Volunteer opportunities will be on Tuesday evenings starting January 2024.  If interested please contact program facilitator Bonnie Chant Kinsman at 403-617-8811 or b.chantkinsman@gmail.com
