Are you in middle school looking to complete 4 hours or less of community service for your Life Skills Class? Work hard as a volunteer for Service Saturday every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 10:00 am-12:00 pm at Meridian Library at Cherry Lane. Spots fill up quickly, so be sure to register as soon as possible. Attend more Service Saturdays for additional hours. View our Volunteer page to register for our next Service Saturdays. Please bring your parent or guardian with you to sign a permission slip.
- Volunteers are service-minded, flexible, and arrive to Service Saturday ready to work hard, have fun, and give back.
- Due to the high demand for completing service hours in our community, Service Saturday is currently the only option we have available for drop-in volunteers completing the Life Skills assignment. (Volunteers interested in serving regularly and weekly can fill out a Teen Volunteer Form.
- We work on a number of projects throughout the library for the two hours. These vary depending on needs. Projects can include dusting, minor cleaning, disinfecting, straightening, trash pick-up, aspects of physical maintenance, and often at least one sit-down project for prepping supplies for programs, folding brochures, and helping organize print materials. We may also work on community-centered initiatives during slow seasons.
- We will provide each volunteer with a confirmation of hours served signed by the volunteer coordinator. Volunteers are asked to be productive during time served.
If you don't think Service Saturday is right for you, please check out other opportunities on VolunteerMatch, Justserve.org, or call a local service organization and ask about short-term volunteer options. Please view this Community Service Project Ideas List for more information and resources.
