All volunteers will be required to submit to a Police Records 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.

    Hello,
    I am a support worker and I have a client, aged 35, with a disability. I am trying to find her a volunteer job that would not be too complicated and was wondering if there was anything at the library that may be a good fit.
    Thanks, Tiffany
