The Newton Free Library is a wonderful and popular resource for the City of Newton. In order to continue to offer the best possible service to the community, the Library relies on its volunteers. Volunteering offers you an opportunity to meet others who love books and libraries while you provide valuable service to the Library and the community. Last year our 400 volunteers contributed almost 20,000 hours of service!


Volunteers help in a number of ways. There is a variety of opportunities available.
