Teen Volunteer Program

At Belleville Public Library, we are happy to help secondary school students obtain their community hours. We try to accommodate as many teens as we can in helping them expand their professional experience through community aid.


Primarily, as a student volunteering in the library, you will be assisting in keeping the library neat and organized for our patrons by shelf-reading.  This involves making sure the books are kept in both alphabetical and numerical order.  Sometimes, volunteers may be asked to help out with preparing craft materials for our children’s programs, or even on a Saturday, actually helping to run a program.

New Volunteer Opportunity! Teen Volunteer Artists

Calling all artists! Submit your uniquely hand or computer drawn colouring sheets to earn volunteer hours. Learn more here: Teen Volunteer Artists

Training Sessions

Before you may begin volunteering in the library, you MUST attend both a group and individual training session.  Both these training sessions and any other time you spend volunteering at the library will count towards your community service hours.


Once you have attended our training sessions, we can schedule you to volunteer on weekday evenings and Saturdays that will work for you and for our library staff. Typically, a volunteer shift is 2 hours per day.

Upcoming Training Sessions

June training sessions are now full. Check back in late August for future training sessions.
