Volunteers fill a vital and essential role at the Rehoboth Beach Library and allow the library to function at a much higher level of service than would be possible with paid staff alone. Volunteers are present within the library on a daily basis to assist with circulation, maintain inventory, and mend books. The library currently enjoys the help of over 20 volunteers.

Volunteer Application


Shelf Elf

Rehoboth Beach Library is privileged to have an elite group of volunteers referred to as "Shelf Elves." Our Shelf Elves agree to devote 1/2 hour of their time per week to help keep the library's bookshelves organized. The day and time is at the discretion of the elf.

It is the responsibility of the Shelf Elf to keep the books neat and in order according to the Dewey Decimal System.

For their work, the Shelf Elves receive the staff's eternal gratitude.
