We’re Open! Click here for branch updates, hours & COVID Precautions.

Beginning on Friday 1/14/2022, the Long Beach Island Branch will offer door-side only service from Monday-Saturday during the hours of 10:00am - 4:00pm.

Due to Covid-19, and the need for social distancing, Ocean County Library is modifying our in-person S.A.I.L. volunteer program to an engaging online format where we are offering teens the opportunity to earn community service hours online.

This virtual volunteer program still allows teens the opportunity to serve their community while learning, sharing and having fun at the same time! The teen volunteer program, Service and Achievement In the Library (S.A.I.L) is offered to teens that have completed at least 7th grade.

Positions fill quickly. Please contact your local branch teen services librarian with any concerns and questions.


We are no longer accepting S.A.I.L. applications for 2021.



Deadline for Applications is July 9th.

To register, complete and submit this application.

Once your application is accepted an email will be sent with directives on how to sign up for the Virtual SAIL challenge.
The 2021 Virtual S.A.I.L. will run from July 6th to August 27th.

It is a full summer challenge with new activity badges added every week to keep your interest intact. Volunteer hours will be awarded for badges earned. If you complete all the badges you receive 30 hours of volunteer service and a SAIL completion certificate.
