Volunteer at the Library!
The Frisco Library is seeking active, highly motivated, diverse customer service volunteers who can’t hide their joy for the library!
Why volunteer at the library? Hear it straight from David Hollingsworth, currently an English as a Second Language library program volunteer.
“I enjoy working with the English as a Second Language program: to me, it’s fun to watch people really trying to learn a new language. I have a lot of respect for them and I’m glad that I get an opportunity to maybe help them a little bit.”
