The Library Needs You!

Do you have a unique collection to share with Library patrons in our front display windows? If you are a quilter, Lego builder, ceramicist, wood carver/turner or even a taxidermist, we have space behind glass to display your creations.

Do you enjoy wrapping birthday or holiday gifts? Book covering is for you! This position has the side benefit of giving you the first sneak peek at all the new additions to the library collection as well!

Do you have a flair for art? We have rotating displays of artwork at the library. This volunteer position could coordinate our current roster of artists and contact new ones. We would also love to have “meet the artist” receptions or presentations.

Do you enjoy decorating for the holidays? The library loves to reflect the change of seasons and needs a volunteer with a creative eye to take charge of decorating. We also have a rotating gallery of themed collections in our display case.

Are you great with your A,B,C’s? We always have books that need re-shelving!


History Buff? We have an ongoing collection that needs to be updated with any and all articles, information and news clippings that have to do with the Chesterfield area. If you are an avid reader of local papers and magazines, this position is for you!

Big Idea Person?


These are just some of the potential opportunities. Email or call the library to volunteer.

The Chesterfield Public Library has been fortunate to receive monetary donations as well memorials, technology grants and other gifts.  Donations directly to the library are tax-deductible under §170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Further, the Library has established the Chesterfield Library Endowment Fund, a separate tax deductible non-profit corporation to manage financial gifts and preserve our vital resource.

Join the Friends of the Library!

"The Friends of Chesterfield Library" organization was established in 1986 by concerned Chesterfield residents who cared about the future of their Library. The Friends of Chesterfield Library support the library by holding fundraising events, sponsoring library programs and special events, and supporting the library within the community.


The Friends are a valuable asset to the library. The group holds a membership drive each year to raise money to support library programs and projects. The cost is $15 for an individual membership, or $25 per family. To continue supporting our community’s library, WE NEED YOU! We invite you to consider offering your talent, ideas and enthusiasm to our library by becoming an active member of our Friends group.

Please call or email the Co-Directors for more information about what you can do to help.
