HOME The Montvale Free Public Library
  Volunteers





         In the Adult Department, the Montvale Library generally employs volunteers only for specific projects with scheduled start and completion dates.  Minimum age is fourteen.  All volunteers in the Adult Department will be required to complete a “Hold Harmless Agreement"; parents/guardians must complete one for any volunteer under the age of 18.

          In the Children’s/YA Departments, volunteers may be employed for specific projects or for a specific length of time, at the discretion of the Youth Services Coordinator.  Students performing school-required community service and girl scouts/boy scouts working toward badges will be considered volunteers.  The parents/guardians of any volunteer under the age of eighteen will be required to complete a “Parental/Guardian Consent and Hold Harmless Agreement.”  The minimum age for volunteering in the Children’s Room is fourteen.  No volunteer may work in the Children’s Room unless directly supervised by a Library staff member.

          Applicants for volunteer positions must be interviewed by the head of the relevant department.  An interview does not guarantee that a volunteer position will be forthcoming.  All decisions of the department heads are final.

          Employment as a volunteer is in no way a promise of paid employment, should an opening arise during the volunteer’s time at the Library.

          Interested persons are also encouraged to become English as a Second Language tutors through the Literacy Volunteers of Pascack Valley and/or to join the Friends of the Montvale Free Public Library.
