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, 2-7 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 1-2 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 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. You may select up to 3 volunteer slots for the school year. Later, if space permits, you will be invited to sign up for additional shifts.
NOTE: The teen library volunteer program uses Signup Genius for students to sign up for volunteer slots. The email provided is where all notifications and signups will be sent. The expectation is that students will show up for all volunteer time slots they sign up for. If you cannot, as soon as possible, please cancel the volunteer time slot through Signup Genius or email the Youth Services Librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students who miss 2 volunteer time slots in a year without any notification to the library will be taken off the volunteer list until they speak with the Head of Youth Services, Jen Dunne, about their situation.

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.
