West Chester Public Library Entrance



Interested in volunteering at WCPL? Terrific! We have a number of library tasks that we always need help completing:

  • Shelving returned or new books and materials

  • Assisting at the main desk

  • Assisting with children’s and teen programs

  • Assisting on at the Lower Level desk


All adults 18 and older will need criminal and child abuse background checks per PA law. Those are free to volunteers and are available from PA State Police (click on their Volunteers Only box) and PA Child Welfare Portal. 


Please review the information on Certification requirements for volunteers here as well as our WCPL Volunteers policy below:
