As part of our commitment to empower Stillwater, the mission of the Stillwater Public Library’s volunteer program is to extend the capacity of the library’s staff so that they may better provide services to the community. By tapping into the skills, experiences, and talents of volunteers, we can reach more people, provide enhanced access to information and technology, and offer more lifelong learning opportunities. 

Library Volunteer Program Vision

Cultivating a community-wide passion for literature, education, and technology through a diverse service program.
