Careers and Volunteering at the Library


All positions are currently filled.



Volunteering at the library is a rewarding opportunity to help out in your community. Volunteers will learn how to accurately re-shelf books, help prepare for storytime crafts, assist with cleaning the library, and a variety of other activities. 

Summer Volunteers

We are looking for two individuals who can volunteer between four and six hours per week.  Volunteers usually work two hour shifts.  

Summer volunteers will begin the week of May 24th and work through the end of July, but of course we are happy to accommodate vacations, camps etc.

We reserve the right to run background checks on volunteers.

If you would like to volunteer at the Van Meter Public Library, please email Directory Nancy Studebaker at
