Volunteering at the Library

The McKinney Public Library System welcomes volunteers! Volunteers may help with shelving, shelf-reading, shelf maintenance, projects, program help, or other duties.

  • Volunteers 13-17 years of age can assist with teen programs and other teen-related duties. 
  • Volunteers 15 years of age and over can assist with all library programs and duties. 

Applicants of all ages need to create an account at mckinney.voly.org. Logon to find volunteer opportunities at the library as well as throughout the city.


Selected applicants will be interviewed for the position for which they have applied. Due to limited availability, please note that we cannot guarantee volunteer hours. The McKinney Volunteer Policy requires criminal background checks on all volunteers. If you have questions, contact

Court-Ordered Community Service Opportunities


The McKinney Public Library regrets that it cannot accept court-ordered community service volunteers. See the list of local agencies that accept this requirement. Each agency has its own criteria on who it will accept as court-ordered volunteers.
