Volunteer Opportunities

Want to help your community, but don’t know how? Volunteer @ the Library!

Volunteering at the library is a great way to get experience that looks good on a college application or resume! If your school or club requires community service hours, volunteering at the Library could help you meet your goals. It’s also a great way to help your community, meet people, and have input into our Teen collections and programs! We are currently accepting applications for the school year (Fall/Winter 2021/2022). 

What do volunteers do at the Library?

I release, hold harmless, for myself and for my heirs, assigns, successors, executors, administrators, and legal representatives, agree that I will not sue the Town of Berlin, or its agents, servants, or employees, from or regarding any injury or loss to person or property, including wrongful death or emotional injury, that I may sustain while performing volunteer work for the Town of Berlin or its agents, servants or employees. I do understand that if I am injured while performing assigned work I will report it immediately, but as I am not an employee of the Town of Berlin I have no right to claim a worker's compensation injury. Further, that I will be responsible for any medical bills should I become injured. I also know that if I am given a task and I am not familiar with a piece of equipment that I will ask for training in its use, or, that I can decline to use the piece of equipment, such as a power tool. By my use of the tool I state that I know how to use it safely and properly.
