Get Involved

Whether you’re looking to earn some community service hours or just want to make a difference, here are a few ways CHPL can help you to get involved!

Teen Activity Board (TAB)

TAB is a small group of committed, responsible, and service-oriented teens who strive to make the Cherry Hill Public Library an exciting and dynamic place for the youth of the local community.

TAB members work hands-on with library staff, assisting at teen and children's programs, creating displays and book lists for the Youth Services Department, suggesting titles for addition to the Library's collection, and planning/implementing events for teens and tweens.

TAB meetings run from the beginning of October through the beginning of June.


TAB members are selected through an application and casual interview. Interested in joining for the 2015-2016 school year? Click here to download the application!



Teen Summer Volunteers

The application process for Summer 2015 Volunteer Program is closed.

Each summer, teens in grades 7-12 are invited to join the CHPL Volunteer Force. This group assists the Children's and Teen Departments with the Library's Summer Reading prize program and summer events. If you are interested in volunteering next summer, check back for an application in March 2016.
