Applications are open for Volunteens to help with the libraries' popular Summer Reading programme.

What is a Volunteen? A Volunteen is someone between the ages of 14 and 18 who volunteers (for no payment) to help children report in for the summer reading programme and to assist at the finale party. You must enjoy working with children, be willing to volunteer a total of at least sixteen hours during January, and attend a training session in December (after school). Volunteens may also assist with other tasks such as school holiday events and the finale party.

Usually you will work a 2 hour shift twice a week with another Volunteen. The report in times for children in January 2019 will be:

Paraparaumu Library     Monday to Saturday     11am-1pm

Waikanae Library           Monday to Friday         11am-1pm

Ōtaki Library                  Monday to Friday           2pm-4pm

To acknowledge the commitment of our Volunteens we will supply a letter of reference for your work experience at a thank you event in February.

Complete the application form below. Volunteen numbers are limited and application does not guarantee acceptance into the programme. Applications close 18 November 2018.
