Are you looking for a fun way to volunteer from home? San José Public Library is looking for avid readers interested in writing book reviews. Each book you review counts as one hour of volunteering. There is a minimum requirement of one written book review per month through May 2021.
How You Will Make a Difference
Teen Book Reviewers play a pivotal role in encouraging other teens to read the same fun books from our library catalog that you're reading.
Volunteers are needed to:
Write a book review following these guidelines
Book review must be at least one paragraph long, preferably 2-3 paragraphs
Include a short summary of the book
Write about what you liked or disliked about the book
Send your review to a designated branch librarian. The librarian will ensure it meets the guidelines and get back to you
Once you hear from the librarian, post your review on our library catalog, sjpl.bibliocommons.com
Give it an Age rating and a Star rating
Make sure your review is made public so that it can be seen
Send the librarian a screenshot of your review, and BOOM! You’ve just earned an hour of volunteer service
