Volunteering and Employment


Our volunteers are extremely important to the library, and play a crucial role in aiding the staff to fulfill our service commitment to the community. Some of the tasks that the volunteers undertake are: shelving returned items, sorting the mail, mending, and assisting in the preparation of programs. As with most volunteer positions, applicants would need to have a recent Police Check. We accept volunteers aged 14+. If you have spare time, and would like to become one of our revered volunteers, please contact the library at 403-938-2220 or email us at volunteer@okotokslibrary.ca

Friends of the Library

The "Friends of the Okotoks Public Library" is a growing group of dedicated volunteers. Sharon Hudspeth is the current president of this group, and is the main contact person for the Friends.

The inspiration behind this group is to raise extra funding for projects in the Library, and to provide the Library with a willing band of folk to call upon when need be to help at events or programs.

If you are interested in joining the Friends, kindly contact Library Director, Lara Grunow at 403-938-2220, and she will pass on your information to Sharon.
