BTV Department Volunteer Opportunities


Early Literacy Outreach Program

The Fletcher Free Library's volunteers bring stories, songs, activities, and fun to home childcares, building relationships with providers, children, and families along the way. Children love having our volunteers bring a little bit of the Library to them, and you’ll love seeing their bright smiling faces when you arrive for your weekly visit with a bagful of books and fun. If you’re interested in joining our volunteer corps, click below!
