Volunteer Agreement/Criminal Records Check

I understand that the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries Volunteer Coordinator and staff have the sole discretion of determining my suitability to volunteer. If for any reason it becomes apparent that my activities are contrary to the mission, vision and policies of the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries and their ability to provide quality services, my time as a CVL volunteer will be terminated and/or not considered. I agree to accept training, guidance, and evaluation from my assigned supervisor and to maintain a professional working relationship with staff and public; to notify my supervisor by telephone of an absence as far in advance as possible and in writing of an extended leave of absence or resignation; to protect the confidentiality of library patron information, and to comply with library policies and procedures. I also understand that it is the policy of the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries to require all volunteers over 18 years of age to complete a criminal records check. CVL will assume the cost of this check.
