The North Palm Beach Library has a volunteer time-frame, which is Mondays to Thursdays until 6:00 p.m. The Library allows volunteers to start volunteering immediately after submitting a Teen Volunteer Application. You do not need to call to schedule a day/time to begin volunteering. After submitting the form, go to the Library's children's department within the volunteering time-frame to begin. A staff member will show you volunteer tasks and duties to begin collecting your community service hours.
Applicants will only be allowed to volunteer after the library has received a completed and agreed upon Summer 2022 Teen Volunteer Application. Volunteers must be thirteen (13) years of age or older. If a patron asks a volunteer for help, the volunteer may direct them to a library staff member. Volunteers are to dress neatly and appropriately. Cell phones will not be allowed when volunteering. Inappropriate language and subject matter will result in immediate dismissal and possible suspension from volunteering. By agreeing, the volunteer and their parent/legal guardian understand the volunteer must abide by the rules listed.
