Volunteer Opportunity, Teen Room, Public Library of Brookline, Brookline, MA

The Public Library of Brookline is looking for a volunteer to help staff our Teen Room every other Friday during the school year.

Volunteers will work an average of 3 hours a week on every other Friday, between 2-5 PM between their start date and June 8, 2018.
Duties will include: providing information to patrons using the teen space, monitoring computer use and troubleshooting basic computer problems, basic shelving, shelf-reading, and familiarizing patrons with the collections and space.  We are seeking enough volunteers to cover the afternoons every other Friday, in three hour shifts, with the potential for other periodic requests for coverage on other days if it fits with the volunteer's schedule. More specific projects can be given if desired, to be determined by the volunteer and the Teen Services librarian. Interns will learn about the daily workings of a public library, specifically in Teen Services, and gain practical experience in staffing a public service desk in a busy public library.
All of our volunteers will need to fill out a CORI form to volunteer here at the library.  We will need a copy of your ID to submit with the form.
If interested, please contact the Teen Librarian Robin Brenner at to set up a short interview.
