Volunteering

The library welcomes new volunteers! Volunteers are important to the quality service that the library offers.

Days and hours are usually flexible. You decide when you want to work, but we do ask volunteers to commit to at least three months of service. 

We are actively recruiting volunteers to serve as Greeter and Wayfinder! Please contact Tammy Parrott at 603-352-0157.

Our other volunteer needs include:

Book Discussion Leaders
Chess Coach
Film Docent
Gaming Volunteer
Homework Helper
Teen Program Assistant

Adult Volunteers:

All adult volunteers must provide references and pass a background check including fingerprinting. Forms and instructions for volunteers 18 years of age and older are available in a Volunteer Information Packet. 

Youth Volunteers:

If you are a teen between the ages of 14 and 18, please call Gail Zachariah at 603-352-0157.  To volunteer we will need a completed New Hampshire Youth Employment Certificate. (To get a certificate, you need to fill out this form and take it and a birth certificate to the Keene High School). We will also need a completed VolunTeen application. You can read about our expectations of volunteers in this VolunTeen Manual.  Unfortunately, if you are under the age of 14, you can not volunteer at the Keene Public Library.

Internships:

If you wish to intern at the library, there is a separate process. Forms and instructions for interns are available in this Intern Information Packet. The library welcomes interns but we rarely have paid internship opportunities at the Keene Public Library. Please contact Gail Zachariah at 603-352-0157 to discuss internship possibilities.
