Volunteer Opportunities

You can volunteer at the Malden Public Library in the “Adopt-an-Aisle” program. After attending an orientation session at the library, you choose an aisle to keep neat and in order. Volunteering can be done according to your own schedule any time the library is open. This volunteer program is best for people looking to do no more than a few hours of community service per week. To learn more about volunteering, call the library at 781-324-0218 or email Stephen Deloney at sdeloney@maldenpubliclibrary.org.

Group orientations are held at least twice a year. Applicants who need to complete volunteer hours for school are highly encouraged to apply at the beginning of the school year. We are unable to accomodate drop in volunteering. Applicants should not expect an immediate response after submitting application.

If you are 18 years of age or older, you will need to need to pass a CORI background check as is required of all Massachusetts public library volunteers. Please bring your Massachusetts license or state ID to the orientation session to fill out the paperwork, which will then be sent to Malden City Hall. If you are under 18, you don’t need to bring anything.

Please be advised that we cannot accommodate court-ordered community service.
