Get Involved Teens


Updates as of Wednesday, April 22

Summer Volunteering
In an abundance of caution during the COVID-19 crisis, we are suspending the application process for Summer 2020 Volunteers. We do not anticipate being able to accommodate new teen volunteers this summer.

Teens Can Still Volunteer From Home!

  • Submit to our Quaranzine - Submit your stories, poetry, and artwork to mbrinn@chplnj.org to be published in a digital newsletter! Each accepted entry will be counted as 1 hour of community service.
  • Attend A Virtual Meetup - Keep checking our Events Calendar and For Teens From Home page for virtual meetups. Follow us on Instagram @chplteens for important announcements.
  • COVID-19 Community Impact Project - We've all been impacted by COVID-19 in different ways and we want to hear your stories. We are collecting images, audio and video files, and your written descriptions about how COVID-19 has affected you and/or your families. Email jriel@chplnj.org for information on how to participate. Your submission will count as 1 hour of community service.

Students are reponsible for keeping track of their volunteer hours and opportunities are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Teen Activity Board

Update: We are not currently accepting applications for new members. Please check back in the future.

Our Teen Activity Board (TAB) is the voice of our young adult community here at the Cherry Hill Public Library. TAB is a selective group of teens in grades 7-12 who assist the Library's Teen Department. We offer assistance at vrious teen programs, create fun displays and book lists, and brainstorm events for the Library's teen community. 

Questions? Call our Teen Librarian, Melissa Brinn, at (856) 903-1208 or send her a message at mbrinn@chplnj.org.
