Volunteer Opportunities at the BPL

What is the Volunteer Program?

Our Volunteer Services Program seeks to help support the BPL and the staff in raising awareness of library services in the community and assists the Friends of the BPL with their literacy outreach initiatives including preparing for the weekly Book Sale. Our commitment is to match your skills and interests to the projects which suit your schedule and availability.

Our Volunteers dedicate their many talents along with hundreds of hours of their own time helping us to serve the City of Bridgeport.
