Upcoming Events
Thursday, April 19, 2018
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Have you ever wanted to give of your time and talents, but you just don’t know how to help? Look no further – BPL always needs volunteers! If you are in grades 7-12, and wish to participate in valuable service for your community, please fill out an application for Volunteer service under the ‘Volunteer’ tab on our website.

During your Orientation we will have a short interview with potential volunteer candidates, a tour of the Library that highlights safety concerns and procedures, as well as an introduction to Library Volunteerism with Sarah Herford, Teen Services Librarian. Attendance is limited to 5 per Orientation.

Attendance to a Volunteer Orientation is mandatory for volunteer service. If you are unable to attend on a Thursday, please contact Jordan Rodriguez (Volunteer Coordinator) via e-mail: to discuss further options.
