March & April jobs


Due to health issues and concerns in the NJ community, all events and volunteering are temporarily canceled until restrictions are lifted.   Thank you for your understanding.  You are welcome to submit an article, as explained below.

Teen summer volunteer applications will be available as of 3/15 online and can be emailed if you prefer not to drop them off in person.  Summer applications are ONLY for teens who wish to be on a set schedule for July and August.  If you aren't available for a set schedule or wish to do a variety of things, there will still be options on the blog.  

Regular teen applications are sufficient if you do not intend to ask for a set summer job.  You do not need to file a new application unless you are trying for a summer volunteer spot.

For all volunteers looking for a way to earn hours during this difficult time, Saleena is allowing 3 articles per week per person for any articles written by teens.  You MUST already have an application on file in order to earn the hours.  Hours are given on the day the article is posted (but please know that the access to the volunteer database is limited so Saleena cannot give an accurate account of how many hours you have accumulated until after this crisis is over)  
For the Blog:  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.  
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.

Thank you for volunteering at the Library! Remember, you cannot volunteer if you don't have a current application on file.
