Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the East Brunswick Public Library! Below are ways you can get involved:


Attend Teen Action Group (TAG) to have a say in the library's collection, help plan new programs and events, and participate in creative activities. At our monthly TAG meetings you will take an active part in our ongoing conversation about where the Library's Teen Services are going and how we can improve. Brainstorm, critique, and comment: it's your voice that counts at TAG. Check the Teens web page for dates and times. For grades 7-12. Snacks!

Time Commitment: As planned/scheduled.

Reading Buddies & Math Buddies

(Grades 8-12; Year-round)
Do you love working with kids? Pair up with a Kid Buddy in grades 1-5 and spend an hour each week working to improve the child’s reading or math skills at The Library. Teen Buddies are responsible for setting a schedule with the Kid Buddy’s parents, planning each session, and reporting on the child’s progress. Volunteers must apply and attend a mandatory training session.
Time Commitment: 1 ½ hours per week for 20 weeks.
