Teen Volunteer Sessions at the library

If you are in grades 6-12 and interested in volunteering, here is how it works:

We have 3 volunteer sessions per year; if you want to volunteer for one of these sessions, you need to submit an online application prior to the deadline for that session.

The 3 sessions run as follows:

  • a fall session that runs September through January (with online applications due around mid-end August)
  • a winter session that runs February through May ( with online applications due around mid-January)
  • a summer session that runs June through August (with online applications due around mid/end May).   Summer volunteers are only open to teens that have completed 6th grade (entering grades 7-12 in the fall).

During the school year….
Teen volunteers primarily help keep the youth area clean and organized.  Additionally they help create storytime nametags, bulletin boards, hang artwork, etc.

During the summer…
Teen volunteers primarily help assist with youth events/classes and summer reading. Additionally they help with craft and program preparations as well as keeping the youth area clean and organized.
