Volunteer at the Library

Northbrook Public Library's Volunteer Program provides opportunities for individuals to make a positive impact in their community while gaining meaningful work and social experiences. Help is needed with all kinds of jobs, some simple and some more complex. The library happily accepts volunteers in Grades 9-12 and adult volunteers. Please note: We are unable to provide court-ordered community service hours at this time.

Volunteer Program (Grade 9 - Adult)

Note: All of the library's ongoing volunteer positions in the Volunteer Program (Grades 9-Adult) are currently filled. If you would to be contacted when volunteer positions are available, please fill out this form.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Friends of the Library Bookshop, please visit their page for more information.

Teen Advisory Board (Grades 6-12)

Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a great opportunity if you are in grades 6-12 and need more service hours for NHS, are interested in civic engagement and social responsibility, or really just love the library and like helping out. We plan teen programs and complete service projects for the community while earning service hours. Our TAB program meets from September to May each year. Attendance at every meeting is NOT required, but we do hope you come to as many as you can!
