Volunteer at the Library

The Needham Free Public Library offers volunteer opportunities for people who wish to offer their services to the Library in a constructive and meaningful manner. A commitment of 30 to 60 hours of community service is a requirement for graduation from Needham High School; flexible scheduling of volunteer hours may be available.

Working adults, retirees, members of lo¬cal and nationwide groups, and senior citizens in the tax work-off program have offered their services to the Library in the past. Duties include shelving materials, replacing barcodes, and straightening books and cleaning shelves.

How to Volunteer

  1. Complete a library volunteer or page application form, available at each of the service desks in the library.
  2. Return the completed form to the circulation desk or by e-mail.
  3. You will be contacted to schedule an overview session.
  4. When you achieve a level of proficiency, you will be offered a regular schedule of volunteer hours at the library.
