Volunteer Opportunities

West Caldwell Public Library accepts volunteers aged 13-18 as part of our growing Teen Advisory Group. Our goal is for young adults to foster connections within the community and develop lifelong skills for prosperous, well-rounded future careers.

Ways to Volunteer

  • Teen Advisory Group (TAG) – Be a leader in the community by bringing together your friends and creating lasting memories at the library. Our TAG is the catch-all for volunteer opportunities. They approve library programs, share advertising responsibilities, approve future library purchases, and kick-start public campaigns in support of the library. Teen Advisory Group meets one Tuesday every month. All are welcome!
  • Volunteer Drop in – This opportunity is offered once or twice a month. During this time teens help with different areas of the library along with various tasks suited for anyone!
  • Chess Club– Teen volunteers are welcome to help assist younger children learning how to play chess or looking to play someone with greater challenges. Volunteers must know how to play chess.
