Puppeteers

One of the Library’s more creative volunteer opportunities is as puppeteer in The South Brunswick Puppeteers Group, formed in 2000. Members work on performances of puppet shows for young children.  This group is open to all in grades 5-12.  When in session, practices are once a week for an hour at a time.  Shows are usually within the same time frame as the practices.  We try to ensure there are at least six practices before a show.  For more information please contact Saleena

Homework Buddies Peer Tutoring (K-12)

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. through the school year, beginning on Sept. 25, 2017 through May 31, 2018

Skilled Volunteer Squad

The goal of the Skilled Volunteer Squad meetings is to increase communication and support between the teen librarian and teens interested in designing and implementing programming requiring skills in technology, visual or performing arts. This will ensure that skilled programs are afforded the advertising, space, and supplies that they require while allowing for a smoother operation through implementation of a streamlined process that aims to build connections and reduce duplication.

The Skilled Volunteer Squad will meet the second Sunday of every month (unless otherwise noted). We will try to have the Skilled Volunteer Squad meet on a weekend that does not coincide with that month’s TVA/EVA meetings.
Volunteers attending Skilled Volunteer Squad meetings should have a current Skilled volunteer application on file.
Volunteers will be required to begin attending Skilled Volunteer Squad meetings at least two months in advance of their proposed program launch date. If the program has multiple date, this means they would need to begin attendance from two months in advance of the first instance of the program or class.
