Become a FOPLA volunteer

We need volunteers! The work we do at FOPLA would not be possible without the help of more than 300 dedicated volunteers. Our organization is over 99% volunteer-run, from our Board of Directors and Committees, to the hard-working volunteers who manage and operate all of our used book locations.

We’re proud of the time and talents donated by all of our volunteers, who like us believe in the value of a strong library community in Ottawa. Because of their efforts, we raise more than $250,000 every year for the Ottawa Public Library.

If you want to give back to the libraries that you love, check out our current Volunteer Opportunities below and send us your application today. Contact us for more information, or click here to learn more about what our volunteers do for Ottawa’s public libraries.
