Teen Volunteers

Be a Teen Volunteer

Volunteers help the Library in many ways. If you’re a teen and are interested in volunteering, there are two options for you:

  • Become a Teen Volunteer
  • Join a Teen Advisory Board

About the Volunteer Program

If you are at least 13 years old, you’re eligible to be a teen volunteer.

You can earn credit for school or club service requirements.

Your volunteer experience will be helpful when you begin looking for a job or filling out college applications.

Teen volunteers should be able to work independently, rather than only in a group setting.

Volunteer tasks, which vary according to the branch location, may include helping to prepare materials for programs or distribution (photocopying, laminating, cutting, folding, typing), assisting in creating displays, helping to set up the meeting room for programs, or helping with the summer reading program.

Questions?

Contact your local branch or email the Young Adult Services Manager. Thank you for your interest in volunteering -- your support is greatly appreciated!
