Volunteer at CEHPL


At the Colchester-East Hants Public Library (CEHPL), we know how important Volunteers are to our community. They share their experiences, knowledge, and time with the people at the Library. They help Library staff with programs and services. The Library is pleased to offer the chance for members of the public to volunteer with us. Volunteers might help staff to:

  • Put books and other materials back on the shelves.
  • Plan and offer programs.
  • Find books or other materials that library users ask for.
  • Keep the Library tidy.
  • Take care of indoor plants.
  • Decorate the Library for special events or holidays.
  • Prepare for special events.
