Due to the large number of volunteer applications that we’ve received over the last few weeks, the library is currently not accepting any more volunteers for this summer. While we’d love to have everyone come in and work with us, we’re a little full at the moment. Please visit Get Connected for more volunteer opportunities around Newtown. Thank you! Have a wonderful summer!


Volunteers help the library in many ways! Volunteer tasks include writing book reviews, helping with programs, tidying shelves, and light clerical tasks. We welcome volunteers with different abilities and skills.

Volunteers are chosen according to their skills, the availability of supervision by library staff and the needs of the library. All volunteers must be 12 years old or older.

Interested in lending a hand? Visit our volunteer portal on Get Connected to get started or fill out the Volunteer Application and return it in person at the YA circulation desk or via email at ya@chboothlibrary.org.!

Please read the Volunteer Guidelines for more information. Questions? Please email YA Librarian Darcy Sowers at ya@chboothlibrary.org.
