The Wood River Public Library recognizes and appreciates the hard work and unique talents the volunteers of the community offer to the Wood River Public Library throughout the year. Nothing in this policy shall be deemed to create a contract between the volunteer and the Wood River Public Library. Both the volunteer and the Wood River Public Library have the right to terminate the volunteer’s association with the library at any time, for any reason, with or without cause. All work performed by volunteers is done without compensation and at the risk of the volunteer. The library does not carry insurance which protects the volunteer in the case of accidental injury.
All potential volunteers must fill out a volunteer application. Volunteers will be accepted at the discretion of the Library Director. Volunteers under the age of 16 must have a parent or guardian sign the application.
Wood River Public Library reserves the right to run background checks on any volunteers working with children and/or young adults, or at the discretion of the Library Director.
