Volunteer and donate

Volunteering at the McKiernan Library is only a click away

The McKiernan Library thrives on the help of dedicated volunteers. Opportunities include: monitoring the space and assisting patrons during open hours, cataloging, shelving, digitization, exhibit setup and more! Our library staff provides training and supervision to help you help us. Also if you have books, audio and other archival materials you would like to donate, please contact Library Director Brian Miller before bringing anything to the Celtic Junction.
As a general guideline, the McKiernan Library collects the most high quality, authoritative materials available on all topics related to Ireland, the Irish Diaspora and the other Celtic Countries.
Our current collection includes the McKiernan donation as well as additional donations from community members and organizations including Irish Genealogical Society International. We are working to grow our collection of books on the Irish Arts (especially music and dance) in hopes to better serve the Celtic Junction Arts Center community and the broader Irish Arts community of Minnesota.
