Busy, but want to help?
We welcome volunteers even if you can only volunteer occasionally, an hour a week or only during the summer.
We realize how busy your schedules are and we can be flexible. But our staff needs to know in advance when
volunteers will be working. If you commit to a schedule and can’t make it, you must notify us promptly with a call or email.

We are happy to provide a reference for our volunteers whether a letter is needed
for National Honor Society, a service club commitment, a job, or a college application.

How to become a Volunteer
Fill out a Teen Volunteer Form and we will contact you to schedule an interview.

If you’re accepted, we will confirm your volunteer shifts, get you trained and you’re good to go.
Questions? Stop in and talk to Ms. Jessica or email librarian@caldwellpl.org or call 973-226-1636
