Fletcher Free Library

Year Round

Fletcher Free Library's mission is to inform, enrich and nurture a community of lifelong learners. The library is a community institution that ensures equitable access to information for all. They are one of the few spaces in the community where people can spend time without needing to buy anything. Additionally, they lend out items such as gardening tools and kitchen supplies, which can help people grow and process their own food.

City Market also partners with Fletcher Free Library to offer the Food For Talk Cookbook Book Club.    

Volunteer Opportunities

Shelving is Fletcher Free Library's most common volunteer opportunity, but they also have volunteers help with the youth desk, perform custodial work, staff library programs, inventory items, and more. The library also occasionally seeks volunteers for short-term large events. Most volunteer opportunities are located at the main branch in downtown Burlington. They occasionally have limited volunteer opportunities at their New North End satellite location.

Looking for Teen/Tween Space Monitors to assist with staffing the teen space desk when Teen Librarian is out, helps patrons find materials, occasionally shelves items in Teen Area. 1-3 hours a week. Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.
