The Japanese American Library is not funded by the city, state or any federal agency or organization. For this reason, the Library depends on volunteers.

It is always on the lookout for volunteers. Despite a lack of funding and being sorely undermanned, the Library staff is dedicated and committed. Karen Seriguchi, a past program coordinator, said she enjoyed her job and believes that the Library serves a significant community function. In light of the dispersed Bay Area Japanese American population, the Library is important for posterity's sake. “Working for the JA Library,” she said, “gives me a feeling of connectedness with the community.”
