  • Make a difference!

Our volunteers are amazingly generous with their time! In the last year volunteers gave 19,133 hours of time and $462,636 worth of cost savings. Volunteers are a key component of our team that makes it possible for library services to be delivered at high quality standards. Here is a video that captures the leadership and dedication of our volunteers.

Adult Volunteer Opportunities (age 18 and older)

Homework Help Tutor

Homework Help VolunteerAdult Volunteer needed to assist in our Homework Help Program at the Mission Viejo Library each Wednesday during the academic year from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. You will be helping approximately six 5th and 6th grade students in a small group study setting with actual homework assignments. Our volunteer should have a background in education and teaching that prepares him/her to be comfortable with helping students in the basic elementary school subjects, with the majority of requests in mathematics. If you have this or a similar background, are interested in helping students, and are willing to complete a background check with fingerprints, please contact Vickie Sullivan for more information. Sessions will resume shortly after Labor Day.

 Friends Bookstore

Friends Bookstore volunteers are needed to cashier, assist customers, sort and price books, and to participate in our online book sale program. For online book sale program volunteers, computer experience is required.

Youth Volunteer Opportunities (age 17 and under)

Book Drive

Students can earn scholastic community service credit by participating in an ongoing Book Drive. One hour of credit will be given for each grocery-size bag of “gently used” books, DVD’s and CD’s that is collected and delivered to the Friends Bookstore.

Service Credit sign-off is given at the time donations are delivered to the Friends Bookstore.

Please note that the library is not currently accepting court-ordered volunteers.
