NP residents entering 10th-12th grades are invited to sign up to lead a 1 hour hands-on session for students in grades 3 and up. Rather than a lecture this will be a fun and interactive session with the main focus being on an activity or craft.

Don't want to lead alone? Sign up with a friend! Find more details on our SignUp Genius.

  Book Review Bloggers

Book reviews serve the community by helping others find the right reading materials. If you love to read and want to share your opinions, you can join our Teen Book Review Crew! All you need to do is read a book in the library's YA or Adult fiction collections, and do a write-up including a brief summary and your opinions. A few times a year, the library receives ARC books, which are Advanced Reader Copies of books that haven't yet been published. First dibs on ARCs go to existing Teen Book Reviewers. You'll submit all reviews and edits via email, making this a great opportunity for teens with busy schedules. Finished reviews will be published right here on the library's Book Review Blog on our website!

Volunteer opportunities are for New Providence residents with a New Providence Library Card.
