As the percentage of high school graduates who attend colleges and universities increases each year the competition for acceptance into these institutions also increases.  The time to begin distinguishing yourself from thousands of other applicants is now!  Why not include community service on your application?  Community service is an effective account of your dedication to life-long learning, improving yourself and that of the area in which you live.  It enhances your desirability as an applicant by – not passively – but ACTIVELY demonstrating your commitment to succeed. 

The Morristown Public Library has community service opportunities  for students in 9th, 10th and 11th grade who are:

  • responsible
  • reliable
  • goal oriented
  • able to work independently
  • able to follow instructions
  • able to maintain a pleasant disposition with the public
