Volunteers play an important role in making sure the Mobile Public Library System achieves its mission. The time and service volunteers provide is critical to our libraries. Volunteers share their talents and provide the manpower that ensures our success. Each volunteer is very important to MPL staff, and it is through the help of volunteers that we can provide even better customer service to patrons.
