Teen Volunteering

Two Ways to Help Your Community


Want to volunteer at the library? Here’s how!

To volunteer at the Old Bridge Public Library, you must first be in grades 6-12 and then take part in a Teen Volunteer Orientation. This orientation will last for 1 hour of community service. At the orientation, you will learn of the various things that are expected of you as a library volunteer. Once you have completed the orientation, you are able to pick additional volunteer hours by choosing from available volunteer jobs on our Teen Volunteer Board inside the library or by checking the list below and calling us at 732-721-5600 ext 5028.
