The Columbia Heights Public Library will be closed to the public until further notice. All programs through April 30 have been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience and will miss seeing you at our programs. Our website will be updated with more information as it becomes available.


There are a limited number of adult volunteer positions at the library. Please contact Cortni, the Adult Services Librarian, for more information or an application. Current volunteer opportunities include:

  • Buddy Up and Read- volunteers are paired with a buddy who wants to work on English reading and speaking skills
  • Technology Assistant- spend time helping people with basic computer questions
  • At Home Delivery- bring books to the homes of people who have mobility issues
