Volunteer at the Library

“Voluntary action is a hallmark of civic society, rooted in citizenship and social responsibility, and shaped by our concern for and obligation to one another.”

From: The Report of the Advisory Board on the Voluntary Sector

Police Record Check

The Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library Board recognizes the need to protect its vulnerable citizens, i.e. seniors, children and/or the intellectually challenged, as well as the Library’s assets and will therefore use Police Record Checks as a screening tool, where appropriate.

Volunteer applicants will be notified prior to selection if a Police Record Check is required. If required, the results of the Police Record Check must be provided prior to finalization of the selection; failure to do so will result in the candidate being declined.

Once a volunteer has completed 20 hours of volunteer service (10 hours for youth volunteers), the fee for processing the Police Record Check may be reimbursed by the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library.
