Equal Opportunity Policy
The City of Springfield maintains a strong equal opportunity policy. Volunteers are recruited, placed, trained, recognized and dismissed on the basis of competence and job performance, without regard to race, creed, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, marital status, disability or political affiliation.
The Springfield City Library values the time and the interest of citizens who would like to volunteer. All those interested should speak with the manager or supervisor of the branch library where they would like to help. Following that, an application form and a Criminal Offense Record Investigation (CORI) form according to the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts must be completed. Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older. Prospective volunteers under the age of 18 must also have signed permission from their parent or legal guardian. Please direct any questions to Jean Canosa Albano, Assistant Director for Public Services at 413-263-6828 x 290 or by using one of the forms below.
