We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for teens and adults at the Stratford Library.
Help the Stratford Library Board with a variety of fundraising activities and events–the Annual Book Sale, Library Mini Golf, an escape room and more!
Teen volunteers learn responsibility and valuable job skills. Library service hours can count for community service requirements for school, church, or civic groups upon request. There are a limited number of teen volunteer slots available.
