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 in the 6th-12th grades

  • These volunteers can assist with teen programs and other teen-related duties through our VolunTEENS Program.

Volunteers 15 Years of Age and Over

  • Volunteers 15 years of age and over can assist with all library programs and duties. These applicants 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 volunteers 15 years of age and older.
  • If you have questions, contact Elfi Roberts at 972-547-7336.
  • For more information, please consult the Volunteer Handbook.

Court-Ordered Community Service Opportunities
