Current Volunteer Needs

The FamilySearch Library is especially looking for a limited number of Discovery Volunteers who would be willing to help staff the main floor of the library on weeknights from 5 pm until 8 pm and/or on Saturdays. Click to view the main duties of Discovery Volunteers.

Volunteers who serve for at least 4 hours a week are eligible to receive a free parking pass.

Volunteers may be asked to assist with projects. They will also need to attend and complete trainings, although it is expected that volunteers are already skilled within their chosen areas of service. Note that availability on weekday evenings or on Saturdays or Sundays will increase the chances of your serving as a volunteer.

We look forward to receiving your application!
