Volunteering

Volunteering gives you an opportunity to change people’s lives, including your own! The McAllen Public Library has volunteer opportunities for adults and teens (16 years or older). Examples of possible volunteer opportunities include:

  • Work in the library bookstore
  • Be involved in the McAllen Book Festival
  • Lend a hand with Genealogy
  • Read to Seniors in Assisted Living Environments
  • Shelve library materials in proper order
  • Teach a craft class
  • Assist with library programs and events, such as the Summer Reading Program
  • Help process materials, such as cleaning DVDs and CDs
  • Help bring McAllen Public Library to the community

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community. If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please visit the City of McAllen Volunteer Opportunities page.
