This year the Ocean County Library is returning with S.A.I.L.

The S.A.I.L program will allow teens the opportunity to serve their community while learning, sharing, and having fun.

The volunteer program, Service and Achievement In the Library (S.A.I.L) is offered to teens that have completed at least 7th grade.

There are limits to the number of volunteers that can participate in S.A.I.L, so positions will fill on a first come first serve basis. Virtual options will be conducted at the discretion of the branch teen services librarian.

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

To register, complete and submit the appropriate application by the branch deadline. Applications are now live!
