The mission of the Butte County Library is to provide all individuals, regardless of age, ethnic background, educational or economic level, with free access to ideas, information, and technology.
Volunteer

The Butte County Library encourages volunteerism as one way to involve members of the community in the activities of the Library. The Volunteer Program provides a supplement to the regular program performed by the paid staff. Applications are screened for volunteers whose skills best fit the current needs of the Library. Current needs determine if a volunteer is accepted; please note that some volunteer assignments may only be available at specific branches.
