Princeton Public Library Seeks Teen Volunteers for Summer

Teen volunteers working at the Princeton Public Library last summer.

The Princeton Public Library is seeking summer volunteers entering grades 7-12 to help out with the library’s annual summer reading clubs and other activities.

Potential volunteers must attend one of five orientation sessions. The sessions are scheduled for: Tuesday, May 15 at 4 p.m;  Saturday, May 19 at noon; Wednesday, May 23 at 4 p.m.; Tuesday, May 29 at 7 p.m.; and Thursday, June 7 at 4 p.m. Advance registration is required. All orientation sessions will be held in the library’s community room on the first floor.

Teens will work with the youth services librarians and help younger readers sign up for the annual summer reading program, which starts on June 20. They will also distribute prizes to readers who meet the club’s goals.

Volunteers will also help the librarians with other tasks such as craft programs and shelving library materials. High school volunteers may be asked to accompany librarians to outreach programs at Recreation Department camps in the area.

Volunteers are asked to work at least 10 hours during the summer. They need to commit to a regular schedule, but the library will be flexible about working around vacations and other activities.

All volunteers will be invited to attend a thank-you dinner at the library hosted by the staff on Thursday, July 12 at 6:30 p.m.

Applications for the teen volunteer program can be found online or at the youth services desk on the third floor at the library. The deadline for applications is May 28.

Although the library welcomes all applicants, the number of volunteers accepted is limited, and preference is given to library cardholders.

To register for one of the orientation sessions or for general information, call Susan Conlon or Allison Santos at (609) 924-9529, ext. 240.
