Volunteering & Community Service

Teen Volunteering

We currently have no openings for regular volunteers at this time. To help our local teens still gain service learning hours, we have started a Special Events volunteering program. When we, or those we've partnered with, have upcoming events where volunteer help is needed, we reach out to those on our Special Events email list. These events can range from helping out at the Farmers Market to supervising a Children's department movie screening.

By submitting the application below, you acknowledge that you will be added to Special Events email list and that there may be times where we only have an event or two a month.

Teen Volunteering Application

If you do not wish to be added to the Special Events email list, we do have virtual volunteering/service learning projects, which you can learn more about here.

Community Service

If you need hours for court-ordered Community Service, please fill out the Community Service application and send it to jo.williamson@highpointnc.gov. We will try and work you in as quickly as possible, but we cannot guarantee community service hours.

If you need other volunteer opportunities, please try one of these great organizations.
  • Habitat for Humanity (Only accepting court or lawyer referred community service)
  • High Point Theatre (Volunteers must be 16 or older)
  • The Salvation Army (Only accepting court or lawyer referred community service)
  • Triad Food Pantry (Contact: Jo Williams: snmart2@aol.com)
  • Helping Hands Ministry (Contact: Steve Key: helpinghandshighpoint@gmail.com)
The High Point Public Library is a rich institution because of the support of people such as you who are willing to share their time, energy and imagination with us. We appreciate your making us what we are.

Support for the Library

You are one of a growing number of community members who are interested in helping your public library. It is because of people who feel the way you do that High Point Public Library is recognized as one of the best public libraries in North Carolina. We want you to help make it the best public library ever.

Interest & Skills

Our current volunteer opportunities do not always match the interests or skills of an individual volunteer. If there is not a volunteer opportunity that's right for you now, there may be one in the near future.

Volunteer Data

We will keep your Volunteer Data Form in our pool of interested volunteers for six months from the date of your application. As we become aware of volunteer opportunities which we feel would interest you we will share your form with the library staff member who will be supervising the volunteer project. Although we cannot predict when or if you will be called, we certainly hope we can find the right volunteer opportunity for you soon!
