All volunteers will be required to submit to a criminal record/police clearance check prior to acceptance as a volunteer. There is a $25.00 charge for a police clearance. This policy applies to all volunteers who will volunteer directly with people.

The Windsor Public Library reserves the right to decline involvement in its volunteer program by anyone it assesses to be unsuitable. The decision of the Windsor Public Library is final in these matters.

    Dear Mahrukh,

    It seems that perhaps you are a very diligent student. What you must do is contact the library directly via email, phone or in person, perhaps with a resume in hand. There you can learn more about the opportunities they present and whether you are interested in what they have to offer you – or if there are any programs offered that you fit the discription of.

    Good luck!

    Dr. R
