Contribute Your Time and Your Talents
Volunteering can be a satisfying way to invest your time and energy and use your special skills.
Princeton Public Library is fortunate to have more than 275 dedicated adult volunteers who contribute their time, talent and energy to the library for a variety of long-term and short-term tasks. During the summer, more than 125 teen volunteers help the Youth Services staff with our Summer Reading Clubs, library events and other project-based tasks.
Adult Volunteers (18 years and older)
Adult volunteers assist the library in a variety of ways, including:
- Shelving materials and keeping books in order.
- Helping students with their homework after school.
- Assisting with materials check-in.
- Maintaining book and community information displays.
- Assisting with the media collection.
- Helping in the used book store.
- Working on special projects.
- Delivering books to home readers.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete an application. As opportunities arise that match your interests and availability, we will contact you. Most long-term opportunities require a commitment of at least six consecutive months. Applications will be kept on file for a period of one year. Princeton Public Library does not currently accept volunteers who are completing community service per court order.
Teen volunteers greatly contribute to the library by helping the Youth Services staff with our Summer Reading Clubs, library events and other project-based tasks. Summer 2013 Teen Volunteer applications are available here. The deadline for applying is May 25. Preference will be given to Princeton Public Library cardholders. Applicants who are selected will be notified by email by the end of May.
For information about the Teen Volunteer Program contact Aaron Pickett, Youth Services Librarian, at 609-924‐9529 ext. 249.
