Teen Volunteers at the Library

Whether you need to fulfill volunteer service hours or just want to contribute to your community, check out the opportunities listed below. Volunteer applicants for postings on this page should be between ages 12 and 18 years old, unless otherwise approved by a librarian.

Currently, we can only offer virtual volunteer jobs at the library due to COVID-19 precautions.

We would love to have your help with the following tasks. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
