The Philip Michael Lauro II Discovery Room at Storrs Library needs junior volunteers!
Our primary need is help with re-shelving and organizing our book collection. You could also be asked to help with craft preparation or assist the librarians in other ways.
In the summer we may also ask if you wish to join us an additional day or two to help during programs. High school aged students may be asked to assist with our summer reading check-in desk/store.

If you are entering grade 6 or higher please consider volunteering with us for one hour each week.

We ask you to commit to at least 5 hours of service.

Please come into the Discovery Room to fill out an application form or download the form from the link below. Ask a friend to volunteer with you!
