The Santa Maria Public Library’s robust volunteer program connects caring people to a great cause. The Library’s dedicated volunteers are an integral part of the Library’s operations. They help the Library leverage limited resources and fulfill its mission to inspire lifelong learning through connections to knowledge and each other.

Volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, skills sets and phases of live assist Library staff to extend the services and programs the library can offer to the public.

The Library and all its branches welcome volunteers who are eager to help make a real difference in their community.
