Volunteer FAQs

  • Thank you for your interest in volunteering! WBRL posts open volunteer opportunities for adults and /or teens to our Volunteer page and the Wood Buffalo Volunteers website. Volunteers are selected based on library needs and may be recruited for ongoing opportunities, as well as special events and programs. 

  • WBRL requires volunteers to be 14 years of age or older. 

  • It depends. All long-term volunteers must submit a Criminal Record Check. If a long-term volunteer is over 18 and working with children or seniors, a Vulnerable Sector Check is also required. Special event volunteers do not need a Criminal Record Check or Vulnerable Sector Check.

    WBRL pays for all required paperwork.

  • Many of WBRL's ongoing volunteer positions require a long-term commitment. Volunteers often stay in their positions for a long period of time, resulting in limited openings.

    In addition to our ongoing volunteers, we recruit volunteers to assists with special events and programs throughout the year.
