Check out this month's issue of The Monthly Laurel, our library's publication designed, created, and edited solely by our teen volunteers.
Thank you Volunteers, for all your help during the summer reading program. If you are interested in continued volunteer opportunities over the school year, it is recommended that you refer to the teen webpage and online calendar of events for additional opportunities. The next set of letters will cover volunteer hours accrued September 2022 through December 2022 and be ready for pick up the first week of January 2023.
Opportunities outside the library (age requirements may apply):
Animal Welfare Association in Voorhees
Habitat for Humanity Youth Programs
Operation Yellow Ribbon
Volunteer Center of Burlington County
Are you interested in long-term volunteer hours? Adopt-a-shelf is an opportunity for tweens and teens ages 10-17 (18 if you are still in senior year) to help the library maintain its collection. You will be responsible for:
-signing in and out for your shifts at the information desk
-managing a section of shelving, both fiction and non-fiction for 1 hour per week
-maintaining the cleanliness of your section (merchandising, dusting and removing debris)
-signing out and in a duster
To receive a designated section, you MUST:
-pass a test which covers both alphabetical order and Dewey Decimal order
-attend an in-person orientation
-be able to come in once a week to complete the task
The test and orientation will each take approximately 30 minutes a piece and are NOT eligible for volunteer hours. The test and orientation will be held on separate days so please plan accordingly. Please refer to the events calendar to sign up for your test. Orientations will be scheduled after the test results are in but will occur on a Friday evening or a Saturday afternoon. Please indicate which works best for you on the bottom of your test.
New tests will be available every month or so.
