SCLSNJ is committed to providing volunteer opportunities that are meaningful for both the volunteer and the library, and that help us transform lives and strengthen communities.

Adult Volunteering

Acceptance of new applications for adult volunteers is paused temporarily.

If you have previously submitted an application, you may still be contacted to begin volunteering if there is capacity at your preferred branch.

If you, or a client, are looking to volunteer as part of an internship or a service learning opportunity, please contact with your query.

Volunteer placement:

Application acceptance from general applicants is temporarily paused. If you have already discussed volunteering with a member of a branch’s team, you may submit an application with them if they are able to begin your opportunity during the pause.

Submission of the volunteer application does not guarantee placement or engagement as a library volunteer. Applicants will receive written confirmation via mail or email once their application has been received. Volunteers will be contacted if applicable branch opportunities are available.

Please fill out the application completely and return it to your local branch – or via one of the methods listed below.
