ADULT VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

Volunteering gives you an opportunity to change people’s lives, including your own.

If you are interested in becoming a Spring Township Library Volunteer, here is some information you may want to consider.

Most volunteer job duties require filing and finding books or putting other materials in proper order. A thorough knowledge of alphabetical filing rules and the Dewey Decimal System is essential to perform these duties. Also, you must be able to stoop, bend, and reach above your head.

We hope you take these attributes into consider as you decide whether you are interested in becoming a Spring Township Library volunteer. For more information please contact our Volunteer Coordinators, Donna Eby or Wenonah Riegel (610-373-9888) or you may stop by the library and fill out a volunteer application whenever the library is open or print a copy online at https://www.berkslibraries.org/branch/spring-township/connect
