    Thanks again for your generous offer to help the Kingston Public Library! We will be in touch soon!

    Volunteer roles

    These are our current and upcoming opportunities for volunteers.

    Greeters

    Greeters will be scheduled for 2-hour shifts and will be stationed near the Library entrance.

    We will train you to

    • welcome the public back to the Library
    • let people know what to expect and what’s required
    • monitor the number of people entering and leaving the building so we stay within occupancy limits
    • answer routine questions or refer questions to us
    • direct people to the right staff member or area

    Storytime Readers and Presenters

    Library programs are now online, both live on Zoom and as prerecorded videos. We’ll work with you to coordinate scheduling, solve technical issues, and promote your program.

    We hope before long to resume offering programs in person.

    Storytime Readers

    Our first priority is for readers to create online storytimes for children from preschool to grade 2. Storytimes run for 30 minutes.

    Presenters

    Are you interested in creating other programs? We know there are many talented people in Kingston, and we invite you to propose a program for any age. You could teach a craft or a skill, or share your interests with the community.

    Thanks for offering to help us re-invent and re-open the Library!

    green highligher emphasizes volunteer in a page of textWe’re working towards welcoming the public back into the Library. Because we’ve had staff reductions, we need some help from volunteers.

    The first opportunities are for volunteer greeters, storytime readers and program presenters. Other opportunities may be added to this list. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate everyone who applies, and that staff and volunteers will follow all recommended covid-19 safety requirements, including PPE.

    To volunteer, please complete this form. If we’re able to match you with an opportunity, we’ll need you to sign a release form and agree to a CORI check.

    If you have questions, please call Library Director Mike Slawson at 781-831-6273 or send him an email.

    Thank you so much for your interest in the Kingston Public Library.
