We are so excited to welcome our middle school and high school volunteers back to the library! The volunteer applications for both groups are available for download below. Please print them from home or pick up a copy in the library at the Circulation Desk. They must be filled out and returned to Luci Parrish, Youth Services Assistant, by Friday, January 28th, 2022 in order to be considered for the Winter Session. Priority is given to SHSD students with a valid Bernardsville Library card.

While volunteering may have looked different in the past, with a new year comes new volunteer opportunities! As we adjust to having our tween and teen volunteers in the library, here are some things to be aware of:

  • The Winter 2022 Volunteer Session will begin on January 31st and end on March 31st. The Spring Session will immediately follow. All opportunities are in person.
  • If students want to continue volunteering during the Spring Session, they will need to fill out a “Previous Volunteer” application at that time.
  • Currently, only 7th and 8th graders can volunteer for our middle school volunteer times. The 5th and 6th graders will be able to apply to volunteer during the Spring Session (in April and May).
  • The middle school volunteers will be able to volunteer on Mondays from 4:30 – 5:30 pm.
  • The high school volunteers will be able to choose between being a regular volunteer and coming in every Tuesday from 5:00 – 6:00 pm or being an “on-call” volunteer who will come in to help with a 2-4 hour event.

We look forward to receiving your applications! If you have any questions about volunteering or tween/teen programming in general, please feel free to reach out by email to Luci Parrish, the tween and teen specialist in the Youth Services Department. You can reach her at teenvolunteers@bernardsvillelibrary.org.
