Book Hours : Community Service Hours for Your Book Reviews!


Please Note

The Book Hours program is not a source for immediate community service hours. We review submissions carefully, and you must be willing to wait at least a week for acceptance. If you need community service hours in the extreme short term, please consider a different solution.

Book Hours Review Rules

  • Open to students in Woodbridge Township and nearby municipalities in grades 8 - 12.
  • Books must be at least 100 pages long and age or reading level appropriate for the volunteer.
  • You may submit a maximum of 2 reviews per month.
  • Reviews are accepted at the discretion of library staff.
  • Reviews must be between 250-500 words.
  • Volunteers submitting reviews that violate ethical academic standards (e.g. plagiarism) will be permanently disqualified from participating in the Book Hours program.

Submitting Book Hours Reviews

  • Return completed forms to Woodbridge Main Library adult or children's reference desks.
  • Submissions can also be made through the library's website at

Receiving Community Service Credit

  • You receive 1 community service hour per 100 pages (i.e. 3 hours for a 350-page book).
  • Please allow 7 days for processing; we will sign volunteer forms or provide confirmation letters by request only.
  • Once your Book Hours Review has been accepted, please contact Teen Services before bringing your community service form for a signature. Forms dropped off without prior arrangement will not be available for at least 24hrs, and possibly longer, pending availability of Teen Services staff.
