Seeking Weekend Volunteers


Looking for a reason to get involved with your local community? Want to have some fun while you volunteer? As current or past supporters of The Makiki Community Library, please consider volunteering at the “little library that could!”

We currently need weekend volunteers from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. No library experience is necessary, as training will be provided.

Volunteers will help with processing books, shelving books, and front desk circulation duties, as well as light cleaning when needed.

For questions, you may also call 522-7076 and speak to the Library Manager. Library hours are Wednesdays 2:00-6:00 p.m. and Saturdays/Sundays 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.
