Volunteering

 All applications expire every year.  If you filed an application as a volunteer prior to Sept 2020, you will need to file another one in order to receive hours.  Applications will not be accepted in July or August.

Please note:  we do not have many "in person" options, but as we get them, they will be posted.  Please be sure and check here for info.

Virtual Volunteering:

1. Saleena is allowing 5 articles per week per person for any articles written by teens.  You can write anything: reviews of anything (personal reviews only); thoughts, informative articles, poetry, or stories.  Be aware that these are aimed at your peers, not a school project; so you can write in a more informal style (but if writing factual information remember to cite sources).  One of the teen staff members will check your article after you email it, any editing and changes have to be done before the article is posted.  You will be informed whether it needs work or if it is to be posted, but posting may be delayed if there are a lot of articles.   


2.  Another way to volunteer is to make a YouTube video for your fellow teens, or for the little ones (if that is your preference).  Your video must be submitted to Saleena in a format that can be uploaded to YouTube, and you must clearly state what audience the video is for and your name.  You will receive 5 hours per video uploaded. No more than 3 per week allowed.


In person volunteering:

Need 8 volunteers to help at a book drive on June 5 and June 6.  The event is an outdoor event in compliance with CDC guidelines.  Volunteers will be helping to organize and transport items donated into the building and arranging them in a storage area (so they need to be able to physically perform the task of bending, picking up and stacking boxes of items).    

          Saturday June 5 we have 2 shifts; 10 am-12:30pm OR 12:30pm-3pm

          Sunday June 6 we have 2 shifts; 11:30am-1:30pm OR 1:30pm-3:30pm

Volunteers can only work ONE shift per day.  As always shifts are first come, first served.  Email teens@sbpl.info or sbplteenvolunteers@gmail.com.


Remember, you cannot volunteer if you don't have a current application on file.  

Email for Saleena is  teens@sbpl.info  Thank you for volunteering at the Library!
