Volunteering in the Youth Library

Teen Volunteers

Whether you need to fulfill service hours, want to get involved in your community, or just enjoy being among the books, we can help you, and you can help us!

Our teen volunteers assist in the organization and maintenance of the Youth Library to support a welcoming environment for our visitors. They also help prepare and run special events and programs that we provide seasonally. By participating in volunteer activities, you will gain experience and skills that look great on college and job applications.

We schedule volunteers according to YOUR schedule! Aside from special events, many of the tasks that may be assigned can be done any day of the week, at a time that is convenient for you while the library is open.

Those between the ages 12 and 18 may volunteer in the Youth Library, unless otherwise approved by a librarian.

Summer Volunteering

We are accepting applications for Summer Volunteers. Please submit an application if you are available during the summer months to help with the many activities of the Summer Reading Program, including registration for the reading challenges, event setup, the Kickoff Party, and more! You will be contacted in May with more information.
