Volunteer Opportunities

Visitor Engagement Office

To best serve the more than 1.9 million visitors, who come each year eager to view the magnificent Thomas Jefferson Building and learn about the treasures it contains, the Library relies on volunteers to greet the visitors and help them plan their visits, assist researchers, and provide tours. As the only Library representative a visitor may meet, a volunteer has an important role in creating positive experiences for all that walk through our doors.

Young Readers Center

The Young Readers Center Volunteer Program is designed for individuals interested in working with children and young adults in a library setting.

The Library benefits by having both seasoned professionals and students who assist with public outreach, programming, collections, and promotion of the Library's resources. The Young Readers Center is located in the Thomas Jefferson Building, Room G-29 open Mon-Sat from 10am-4pm. For more information, contact Sasha Dowdy at ‚Äč[email protected].
