Donate Time, Be A Volunteer
People come to the Library as volunteers to give back to the community; add depth to college applications; fill requirements for school clubs and classes; and for the love of the Library. Whatever the reasons, the Naperville Public Library appreciates and values the time and effort given by our volunteers. Over the past year our volunteers supported our commitment to excellence by contributing over 10,000 hours of time to the Library.
