Until further notice, library volunteering opportunities for adults are not available.
Adult volunteers (minimum age of 18) must be Scotch Plains residents and Scotch Plains Public Library cardholders in good standing.
Qualifying adults may inquire any time about volunteering to adopt-a-shelf, coming in once a month to straighten and put in order a section of the Adult Room collection. Volunteers choose a favorite area of interest and devote an hour or two once a month to its upkeep.
We also welcome adult volunteers on an “as-needed” basis for work such as shelving library materials and helping set up for occasional library events.
Inquire in the Adult Room.
Teen Volunteers (Grades 6-12)

Please note: If you need to earn volunteer hours by a specific date, please contact us to make a plan at least 4 weeks before your deadline. We cannot accommodate last-minute requests for volunteer time.
Volunteers Working with Job Coaches
The library will consider accepting, on a case-by-case basis, volunteers who will report to work with a job coach or certified employment specialist from an accredited educational institution or agency. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. They must be Scotch Plains residents and Scotch Plains Public Library cardholders in good standing, or members of Scotch Plains Public Library’s Next Chapter Book Clubs.
