Volunteer at the Library

 

Our volunteers work at many different tasks that enable the library to provide better service to the community. Teens are welcome to participate.  Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age or participating through a youth organization, school or church in order to fulfill a community service requirement within a limited time frame (i.e. Scout or school projects).  Summer reading club volunteers must be at least 12 years of age or entering the 6th grade.

For more information about volunteering, call 856-772-1636, or ask at your local branch.  You may either fill out our online application and print it out, or print out an application and fill it in by hand.  Then drop it off at your local branch.
