2018 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 2018?
  • 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 25th and runs through Wednesday, August 8th. 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 2018 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!
