Our Library is one of the busiest libraries in the State, and values the help of dedicated volunteers to meet the needs of our population in the City of Corvallis and throughout Benton County. The Library strives to offer services to the entire community by providing materials and service that cross cultural, economic, and educational boundaries.

Volunteers are essential to helping the Library provide a high level of service at a low cost to the community. More than 300 volunteers give over 14,000 hours to the library every year. They generously contribute their time and hard work in a number of ways. Learn more about volunteer opportunities.
