Volunteer / Community Service Opportunities

Interested in volunteering at the library and earning community service credit? Consider joining our Youth Advisory Board. The Board meets monthly and works to develop and implement programming for tweens and teens. To learn more, contact Youth Services Librarian Kate Foster at kfoster@palisadesfreelibrary.org

Local history buffs can also earn community service credit by doing research: 
  • Research and write a one-page biography about a current or former resident of Palisades.
  • Research and write a one page history of an old house or building in Palisades.
  • Write a story about something unusual that happened to you in Palisades.
  • Interview someone who has lived in Palisades for more than 10 years.
We'll share your work with the community through our social media platforms and retain a hard copy for viewing at the library.

Book reviews are also welcome! Write a review or create a short video about a book, and we'll share it on our social media platforms.
