Share your time with us. Make a difference.

Volunteer at the library or for the Richland Library Friends.

The Richland Library receives a tremendous amount of support from many dedicated volunteers. Together with regular staff, volunteers perform varied assignments that help accomplish the daily work of the library, as well as many special projects throughout the year. Volunteers are recognized with individual awards for accumulated service hours, an annual recognition event and the selection of  Volunteers of the Year.

Friends Volunteers

Friends volunteer at a variety of tasks, including advocacy efforts, book sales, author events and other special programs.  Volunteers meet weekly at the library's Operations Center, located at 130 Lancewood Road near Dutch Square Center, to prep for book sales. Friends Volunteers must be members of the Richland Library Friends. For more information, please call (803) 988-0885 or click here to join and start volunteering right away.
