Upcoming Volunteer Events

School Year Volunteer – Throughout the school year, a select group of students volunteer on a weekly basis assisting with a variety of projects such as craft preparation, cleaning, and keeping the bookshelves in good order. If you have completed a volunteer application, you will receive emails every few months from Signup Genius inviting you to join our School Year Volunteer crew. Volunteers select the days and times they wish to volunteer, Monday through Thursday, 3-7 pm.

Summer Volunteer – The library needs volunteers to help us run our Summer Reading program. Volunteers listen to children report books, hand out prizes, and help with special projects such as programs or craft prep as needed. If you have completed a volunteer application, you will receive an email on June 1 to select your days and times through Signup Genius. Volunteers sign up for 2 or 3 hour shifts. You may select one shift per day and up to 5 shifts for the summer. Later, if space permits, you will be invited to sign up for additional shifts.

Library Volunteer (Special Projects) – Throughout the school year, the library needs volunteers to help with special projects such as book sales or children’s programs. We keep a list of potential volunteers and invite them to sign up for these opportunities through Signup Genius. If you have completed a volunteer application, you are already on the list to be contacted.

Do you have ideas for new library programs or services?  Are you interested in presenting your own programs at the library? TAB is a brand new volunteer and advisory group where members will work with our newest librarian, Miss Michelle, to make recommendations and help develop and present new programs together.  Bring your creativity, have your voice heard, make new friends and grow your leadership skills while earning community service hours.  If you have not already completed a Teen Volunteer application, you’ll need to fill one out.  If you forget, copies will be available at the meetings. You’ll need a Moorestown Library card and your parent or guardian will need to sign your application.

Community Volunteer

Looking to broaden your volunteering horizons? Here are some volunteer ideas to benefit both local and international organizations.

Volunteer to assist at a blood drive – act as a greeter, escort, or serve refreshments; help arrange appointments for an upcoming blood drive or make thank you cards for the Red Cross to hand out to blood donors. Check out the Red Cross Youth Association for more volunteer opportunities.


Animal Welfare Association’s Volunteer Program begins at age 12.  Children 12-15 can volunteer with a parent/guardian.  Children 16-17 can volunteer on their own once they have completed a volunteer orientation with a parent/guardian.  Volunteers help socialize our animals, give time to our pet clinic by making appointment confirmation phone calls, checking in vaccine clinic clients, and scanning paperwork.  They also help at special events and outreach events with everything from set up, during event help, and clean up.  Fill out an application here: Volunteer at AWA | Animal Welfare Association (awanj.org)


Help the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter by running a donation drive, running a fundraiser, or fostering a pet. Visit their website for a complete list of ways teens can help.
