Thank you for your interest in sharing your time and talents as a volunteer for the Traverse Area District Library. Our need for volunteers fluctuates throughout the year, with the most significant need being during the summer months. We do not use volunteers for jobs performed by our professional staff, such as re-shelving books and materials, or leading programming such as storytimes.

If you are still interested in volunteering with the Traverse Area District Library:

Download a printer-friendly PDF of the TADL Volunteer Application. You must print out, sign, and return to the Main library located at 610 Woodmere Avenue in Traverse City. Properly completed applications are retained on file for 12 months from the date received by the Marketing and Communications Manager. Thank you. 


Friends of the Library: Volunteers are needed to help with annual used books and media sales. Proceeds from these sales are used to support TADL programs, projects and facility improvements. The Friends are also looking for prospective Friends Board and Committee Members.
