Get Involved

Find Community. Share Expertise. Enhance Your Career.

 

Volunteer for a Committee

Give back and contribute to the Core library profession and volunteer for a committee. Serve as a resource to help build Core programming, advocacy, and sustain the member experience to keep libraries strong. Besides, library professionals could use more resume credentials to brag about! 

Participating on a committee is a great way to develop new skills, learn from your peers, help advance the mission of Core, and accomplish concrete goals. We need your talents! The volunteer form opens in September each year.

All members of Core are urged to apply. We need the talent and skill of dedicated library professionals like you.
