Volunteer Opportunities

One of the most delightful aspects of Plainsboro Public Library is the magnificent volunteer support we get from the community. Volunteers contribute to the remarkably cost effective, innovative service at Plainsboro Public Library. From “reading the shelves”, to helping with community wide festivals, to manning the technical needs of the vast Interlibrary Loan System, to sorting donations and selling books at the monthly sale, volunteers play MAJOR roles. During 2012, nearly 100 adults and teens donated over 3,700 hours to the Plainsboro Library!
