Connect. Study. Relax.
Volunteen with Us!
Volunteens must be 13-17 years old and have a parent or guardian’s permission to volunteer. For more information, please contact our Volunteen Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Volunteen program will remain virtual this summer (2021). We will not have any in-person volunteering. The list of virtual/distant volunteer opportunities will be shared with you upon completion of the application process.
Additionally, as we prepare to open our new Liberty Branch next summer (2022), we are going to review and restructure the Volunteen program to better suit our growing system. For this reason, we will not have any volunteer opportunities during the 2021-22 school year.
The only exception will be our Teen Advisory Board, which will continue to meet on a monthly basis and can be used for one monthly service hour.
Keep an eye on the Library’s Teen Services Page, which we will update to include a list of other local organizations that utilize teen volunteers. Otherwise, be sure to complete any service hours you need before July 31st!
Applications will close after Wednesday, June 30th.
