We love volunteers! There are a few ways to help!

Almost all of our librarians, shop monitors, and event staff are volunteers! We have over 50 incredible people who help make this project possible. Want to get involved? You don't have to know everything, you just have to love being a part of our community!

Volunteer Librarians/shop Monitors

Weโ€™re currently fully staffed for librarians and shop monitors. Hooray! Check back soon or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Event Volunteers

We are always looking for help at our open houses, lectures and happy hours! No experience is necessary, you just need a can-do attitude!

Volunteer Tinkerers, Fixers & Handy people

Are you great at taking things apart? Have some experience with woodworking, sewing, or electronics? We need your help! Twice a year we host our Fix It Fair, a free event where anyone can bring in broken furniture, small appliances, bikes, clothing, etc. and get help with repairs!

Jack/Jill of a certain trade

Have an idea that you think would make a great class? Want to share your knowledge on how to fix leaky faucets? We are currently looking for teachers, especially for our Home Care & Repair classes!

Marketing Maven/Master

There's over 600,000 people in Baltimore and we only have 1000+ members - help us reach those who need us! 

Have awesome Skills?

Just because it isn't listed doesn't mean we don't need it!  Shoot us a message and let us know how you'd like to contribute!


We typically ask that all volunteers be active library members for at least 2 months prior to applying. However, if you have a skill you know we need and you are an awesome human we can make an exception - contact us!
