2019 Teen Volunteers!

We are looking for responsible young people to volunteer at the library this summer. Are you …

  • entering grades 7 or higher in the fall of 2019?
  • a Denville resident?
  • able to commit one to two hours during the weeks that you volunteer? 
  • interested in helping out at children’s activities or within the children’s library?

If you answered yes to these questions, we’d love to have you!

Volunteers are needed during our Summer Reading Program, which begins on Monday, June 24th and runs through Wednesday, August 7th. Most volunteers assist at the children’s summer events listed in our Google Calendar of Events.  

Here are the steps you need to take in order to volunteer:

  1. Please visit the Google Calendar of Events to see which dates / times / events at which you would like to help us.
  2. Complete the 2019 Teen Volunteer Formwhich must be signed by your parent or guardian and dropped off at the library.
  3. E-mail Ms. Maryellen, our Youth Services Supervisor, at with your interest and proposed schedule. We will then work together to create a volunteering schedule for you. 

Two important points:

  • There is no minimum hours requirement, but we do try to limit our volunteers to two hours of volunteering per week.
  • If you are unable to volunteer at specific children’s events, we may be able to accommodate your volunteering at specific times. Please email Ms. Maryellen and we will try to find a shift when we have a staff member to supervise you.

Thank you!

Technology marches on, throwing new gadgets and apps at us faster and faster.

Denville Public Library would love to help you keep up.  We can take you from the basics of using a computer all the way to using apps like Word, Excel, Publisher and PowerPoint.

Feel left out when someone says “Hey, did you see those great pictures of my grandkids/dog/new house on Facebook”?  We can help. Need to do research  in      online sources or trace your family history?  We’ll show you how.  Want to load audio books or e-books on your phone or tablet?  It’s easier than you think.

Denville Public Library is offering one-on one Tech Connect session to help you with these and lots of other tech issues like:

  • Email Basics
  • How to use a Flash Drive
  • Ipad/Android Help

Contact the library at 973-627-6555 or at with the subject line of Tech Connect and make an appointment and we’ll be happy to help.
