Volunteer Opportunities

Want to help your community, but don’t know how? Try the Library this summer!

You’ll meet other teens, help kids sign up for the Summer Reading Program, and assist staff with important tasks. It’s a fun way to get experience that looks good on a college application or resume! If your school or club requires community service hours, volunteering at the Library could help you meet your goals.

What do volunteers do at the Library?

  • Help other young people enroll in summer reading and collect prizes
  • Tidy library areas
  • Help staff with special events and programs
  • Enter data on a computer
  • Prepare crafts, cut paper and organize items

What you need to know

  • To volunteer, you must be entering grades 6-12 in the Fall
  • You need to be dependable and show up for your shifts. Make sure you have a ride worked out!
  • Ask your parent or guardian for permission
  • Be available to work between June 25 and August 10 (let us know if you have a camp or vacation scheduled)
