Every summer, the Youth Services Department needs enthusiastic teen volunteers to help out during our busy Summer at the Library.

Volunteers will help tidy library areas and shelve books, help with children’s events, tend to the library book drop and assist with other tasks as assigned. Teens will learn job skills and workplace values, and make a difference in their community!

Teens ages 13-18 who can commit to at least 16 hours of volunteer work during the summer are eligible to apply. Volunteer hours will be needed between May 22 and July 24. Teens need permission from a parent or a guardian and need their own transportation to the library.

Application deadline is Tuesday, March 31, 2020. Due to T-shirt orders, no applications will be accepted past the deadline.
