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

Adult Volunteer needed to assist in our Homework Help Program at the Mission Viejo Library each Wednesday during the academic year from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and 4:30-5:30 p.m. You will be helping elementary school 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 in the Fall.

 Friends Bookstore

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

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


Bikeway Survey

The City of Mission Viejo is developing a Bikeway Master Plan to improve the cycling experience in our community and encourage more people to enjoy riding their bicycles. We are currently in the process of gathering information to understand current cycling trends and preferences in the City.

As part of this effort, beginning on November 8th and running through December 7th, we are seeking resident feedback via a short, online survey. The survey will be available on our website, in our newsletter, and via our social media sites. 

The online survey is available at https://tinyurl.com/missionviejobike, and those who participate will qualify for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
