“Heritage Apples are the apples of our Grandparents and Great-grandparents. Their uses were varied–for drying, frying, fresh eating, Halloween treats, baking, brandy, cider (hard and sweet), vinegar, livestock feed, and much more. The diversity of their shapes, sizes, colors, textures, tastes and times of ripening was amazing. For every early farm family an extensive orchard was essential. As more and more land was settled, a well-developed orchard was a sure sign that civilization had reached the American frontier.

These old-timey apples are part of our agricultural heritage, but they are rapidly being lost forever. The trees are being cut down and the older people who remember the apple names are passing away. The window to still find and save these wonderful apples is rapidly closing.”

Anyone aged 14-17  must complete a PA State Police Criminal History Clearance (PCHC) and a PA Child Abuse History Clearance (CAHC)*. These are free for volunteers. Those aged 18 and older must also complete an FBI Fingerprinting Report.

Volunteers have the opportunity to:

Attention: Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate everyone. Those seeking volunteer hours for the National Honors Society should consider having one or more backup locations in order to obtain all required hours.

Adult Volunteers

Unfortunately, the Royersford Free Public Library is not accepting adult volunteer applications at this time.
