Volunteer Orientation and Recruitment Day

We will be holding a volunteer orientation and recruitment day in the near future.

Volunteers are at the heart of our events. We are looking for volunteers for all areas, including Library & Genealogy, Docents leading tours, special events, and administrative help.

Staff, ICLF Board, and current volunteers will be present to answer questions, to explain the various volunteer areas, and to help you make an informed decision about how to begin your volunteer journey. We hope to see you there!


Everything we do here at the Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library is assisted by our wonderful volunteers. We have volunteer opportunities available for every event and every hour we are open to the public. Volunteers at the Library and Center get a chance to educate and interact with the public on a daily basis, all while increasing their own knowledge of Ireland’s history, literature, and culture. By becoming a volunteer you help the Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library deliver the experience, services, and classes that create a lasting legacy.
