Volunteer

We consider our volunteers to be a major asset in helping the library run smoothly. The library uses the services of volunteers, age 13 and older, to supplement the duties and activities of paid staff. Volunteers assist with various tasks, including:

  • Shelving materials
  • Assist a librarian with program setup/clean up
  • Clerical work
  • Special projects

    A library volunteer application must be completed by all prospective volunteers. Please stop by the library to pick up an application.

    Teen Volunteers

    The SBCPL is happy to have the help of teen volunteers throughout the year, whether volunteering for TN Promise, National Honor Society or another high school organization or because you would like to help out at the library!

    The first thing you would need to do is to fill out a Teen Volunteer Application – all attached pages – and return it to the library. If we have available volunteer opportunities, a library staff member will contact you to arrange times.

    For TN Promise:

    While the SBCPL is happy to have volunteers and will do what is possible to help arrange volunteer hours, we cannot guarantee hours or a certain number of hours. You will first need to fill out and turn in the Teen Volunteer Application. If we have available volunteer opportunities, a library staff member will contact you to arrange times.

    As TN Promise hours have specific deadlines during the year, we have specific deadlines for the applications and hours. All applications and/or arrangements for hours must be completed a minimum of 2 weeks before the appropriate TN Promise deadline.

    No applications will be accepted or volunteer hours arranged for TN Promise for the 2 weeks before the TN Promise deadline – March 17 for hours due in April, June 17 for hours due in July, and November 17 for hours due in December.
