Junior Volunteers:

Junior High School Volunteers in the Children’s Room:

Students in grades 6, 7, or 8 are invited to volunteer in the Children’s Room. During the school year, we have space for 12 volunteers per week. Junior volunteers are limited to one hour/week.

Some typical tasks performed by junior volunteers:

  • Finding books from a printed list and putting them on carts
  • Shelf reading (checking to make sure books are in the correct order on the shelves)
  • Preparing craft materials, e.g., cutting paper, tracing templates, etc.
  • Cleaning baby toys

The school year is divided into three segments of 3 months each: October, November, December, and January, February, March, and April, May, June. This allows for 12 hours of volunteering per segment (1 hour/week). Hours are available after school until 30 minutes before closing, Monday through Saturday.

During July and August, we sign up to 30 volunteers who help with the Summer Reading Program and other tasks.

Please download a copy of the application and return it to the Children’s Department.
