Friends of the Pikes Peak Library District - Volunteer

Friends of the PPLD is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation independent from the Pikes Peak Library District, and as such they have their own qualification requirements and screening process for volunteers. It is easy for patrons to get confused about this separation. As far as volunteering is concerned, it may help to think of it this way: Friends volunteers perform tasks related to the organization’s support of the Library; PPLD volunteers perform tasks related to operating the Library itself.

Supporting the Friends through membership only, without volunteering, is also an option.
