An image of the puzzle exchange shelfOur Puzzle Exchange is in the multi-purpose room that is located across from our Adult Fiction section. Here’s how it works: you drop off a puzzle you no longer want (as long as the puzzle is in good condition, has all the pieces, and has a box with a picture of the finished puzzle), and then pick up another puzzle to take home. You don’t even have to check it out!

Please note that the puzzles will not be moderated by library staff, and the library will not be ensuring the quality or quantity of puzzles in the exchange. You may either return the puzzle when you’re done, or keep it!

Don’t have a puzzle to donate? That’s okay! Feel free to take a puzzle now, and bring one in the next time you come to the library!

Teen Volunteers

The Royersford Free Public Library is happy to accept teen volunteers. Anyone aged 13-17 should come to the circulation desk to pick up a Youth Volunteer Application. 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:

  • Assist with programming
  • Prepare crafts
  • Clean
  • Decorate
  • Shelve books

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. Hours are first come, first served, so submit your applications as soon as possible!

 

Adult Volunteers

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

 

*Please note: Due to the requirement of government clearances, the Royersford Free Public Library cannot accommodate individuals seeking court-mandated community service hours.

By August 15, 2018, we managed to read 1,432,260 minutes, and nearly 900,000 of them were from our elementary age group (4th grade and younger)! Thank you to every single reader, parent, performer, and prize donor who helped us reach our goal of one million minutes! We couldn’t be prouder!

We also want to send a heartfelt thank you to all our generous sponsors who helped make this year’s Summer Reading Program possible!
