Volunteer Opportunities

The Sterling Heights Public Library is supported by many volunteers. Volunteers really do make a difference.  Because of their efforts, our library has been able to provide services and collections that make our library a very special place for the residents – from the very young to our senior citizens.  Volunteers assist in the Friends' Used but Sterling bookstore, help with programs, and give of their time with various projects that happen throughout the year. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please use the city's online volunteer form or visit the library to complete a volunteer application.
