Boston Public Schools Library Services provides centralized support for Boston Public School communities and Library Team members as well as central leadership to schools and departments to ensure that library media centers play a core role in achieving academic targets.

This is a fun and productive opportunity to help BPS schools get their libraries organized!

NOTE: For some library sites, volunteers may be asked to fill out and submit a CORI background check form prior to volunteering. This will be coordinated by the volunteer leader.
