Current Princeton Public Library cardholders entering grades 8-12 (2019-2020) are eligible to participate. Our program has limited capacity. Learn more about obtaining a library card at princetonlibrary.org/about/library-cards.
To create a more interactive and rewarding volunteer experience, we provide a list of event signups that each teen can select on their own, based on their availability.
In addition to the event signups, we will also be offering four, week-long event camps where team members will work with a small group of peers to plan and execute a fun, large-scale library program for children, with the support of library staff. Team members will volunteer 9-12 hours over the course of three to four days, depending on which camp is selected. They will be assigned to one of the following sessions according to availability and preference:
