The Frank L. Weyenberg Library of Mequon-Thiensville is an asset to our community.  We provide essential services in times of crisis, as well as in times of calm, and we do so with a limited budget.  Therefore, we reach out to ask community members to volunteer at the library, thus enhancing the services the Library can provide to the public.

Volunteer Tasks

  • Volunteer tasks may include but are not limited to:
  • Indexing, data entry, scanning
  • Dusting books and shelves, arranging library materials in a neat manner
  • Preparing materials for mailings
  • Sorting and merchandising materials for sale
  • Advocating for the Library
  • Maintaining the exterior of the library's building and grounds
  • Serving on volunteer boards and committees
  • Assisting with programs


Candidates must complete a Volunteer Application. Paper copies are available at the Circulation Desk or by printing the PDF version. You may also submit an online application at this link.
Your application will be reviewed and a member of the Library's staff will contact you to discuss duties and schedules.  Depending upon the assignment, the Library reserves the right to perform a background check.  The Library does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, national origin, ethnicity, age or other non-merit factors.  Generally, volunteers must be 14 years of age or older, but exceptions may be made on a case by case basis, or in conjunction with Library programming.  Applications are kept on file for six months. Applicants under the age of 18 require the signature of their parent or guardian before beginning individual volunteer service.

Training and Performance

Volunteers shall receive training for their specific assignments by a member of staff. Volunteers shall by supervised in their assignments by the Library Director or by his/her designee, to whom the volunteer will report. The supervisor shall provide feedback and be available to answer questions about volunteer assignments. A volunteer who has concerns is invited to discuss the issue with the supervisor or Library Director.

Volunteers are expected to perform their assigned duties to the best of their abilities and to be supportive of the mission and policies of the Library. All volunteers should keep their supervisor informed of their projects, schedule and work status.

Compensation and Reimbursement
Volunteers are not compensated by the Library for their service. Volunteers' privileges and responsibilities for use of the library's collection and other resources are the same as those of other patrons.
