The Library Board encourages individuals and groups to volunteer their time and efforts in the service of the Black River Falls Public Library. The library acknowledges the benefits it receives from volunteers. Volunteers are liaisons to the community and by their contribution are advocates for quality library service.
A volunteer is a person who performs tasks for the Black River Falls Public Library without wages, benefits, or compensation of any kind. Volunteers supplement the efforts of paid library staff to provide quality library collections, services, and programs.
Volunteers are not covered under a Workers Compensation plan. Volunteers help perform routine tasks and special projects tailored to talents the volunteer may possess and are supervised by the Library Director.
Volunteers are recognized by the public as representatives of the library. Volunteers are expected to act in accordance with library policies and to reflect positive customer service attitudes to all library patrons. To present a positive image to the public, it is expected that volunteers dress and appearance will be appropriate for a business environment and in keeping with the work assignment. The volunteer relationship is “at-will” and can be discontinued at any time by either party.
Black River Falls Public Library volunteers provide important support for the Library’s mission to meet the lifelong learning needs of our diverse community.
