KFL Volunteers

Josephine Oliver

"I've always loved reading, so when I retired and moved to Maine, the most logical step was to volunteer in a library. Fortunately, Kennebunk Free Library fit the bill perfectly! I've enjoyed working with all the staff and hope to continue volunteering for as long as possible!"
Volunteer Josephine Oliver

Josephine passed away on June 18, 2017.  She stayed with us at KFL as long as she could working hard and making us all laugh.  Both her wonderful personality and her contributions to the Library are greatly missed.

Volunteer Policy

Role of Volunteers
The KFL welcomes the use of volunteers to enhance library service to the community. Volunteers generally provide support services to staff or work on special projects.

Selection and Retention of Volunteers
Volunteers are selected based on their qualifications and the needs of the Library at any given time. Volunteers may be selected by department managers based on a completed volunteer application form and an interview. All adult volunteers over the age of 18 are required to complete and sign the Volunteer Screening Authorization Form prior to beginning their volunteer work. The Library Director and staff shall use their discretion in determining the appropriate use and retention of volunteers.
Youth Volunteers
The Library may use youth volunteers under the age of 18. Parents/guardians of youth volunteers must sign a consent form for their child to perform volunteer service hours at the Library.
Court Ordered Community Service
The Library accepts volunteers requiring court ordered community service at the discretion of the Library Director. Court ordered community service volunteers are required to be interviewed by the Library Director prior to being accepted for service.

Training and Supervision
Volunteers will receive training in their assigned duties from a library staff member. Volunteers shall work when adequate supervision is available.  Work schedules and specific time commitments will be arranged individually by each volunteer and his or her supervisor.
