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.
