Volunteering opportunities are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. This page is regularly updated as volunteering opportunities become available and expire. Cherry Hill students are responsible for keeping track of their volunteer hours.
Community service credit is not guaranteed. Read all directions and requirements for all tasks, and take note of deadlines. Do not use your school email address because you will not be able to receive emails from us.

Shelf Readers are responsible for ensuring that library materials are correctly organized on our shelves. The Shelf Reader calendar runs all year, but when you start depends on when you apply.

Film a CHPL Teens Tutorial!
Do you have a special skill that you can teach other teens? Film a video tutorial and have it included on our CHPL Teens YouTube Channel! Teens whose videos are accepted and published on our YouTube channel can earn 5 hours of community service.
Here are some ideas for instructional videos you could film: favorite recipes, art skills, social media/technology skills, how to set up a planner for the school year, etc. Get creative!
Videos should be at least 2 minutes long, but no longer than 10 minutes long.
Submit your CHPL Teens Tutorial with this online form.
If you have trouble submitting your video through this form, e-mail Jasmine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be Featured in a Teen Newsletter
Cherry Hill Teens (grades 6-12) can earn community service credit by contributing to our monthly teen e-newsletters. Submissions we accept include visual artwork, video performances, community service projects, and more.
(select “CHPL Teens”).
Email any submissions to Jasmine Riel at email@example.com.
Submit a Teen Book Recommendation
Teens in grades 6-12 may recommend a YA book to earn community service credit. If accepted to be published in our monthly teen newsletter or social media, teens will earn one (1) hour of community service credit for each book recommendation. Email Melissa Brinn at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Book recommendations are spoiler-free teasers that are designed to help others decide whether they would like to read the book. Teens can submit written book recommendations or short videos.
Teen Advisory Board
Our Teen Advisory 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 various teen programs, create fun displays and book lists, and brainstorm events for the Library’s teen community.
Applications are CLOSED for the 2021-2022 school year.
