While the library strives to provide volunteer opportunities for teens, there is no guarantee that teens will be able to complete a set number of hours at any given time. Therefore if you are required to complete community service hours within a certain time, it is recommended that you seek other volunteer opportunities.

Teen Advisory Group

Our Teen Advisory Group is an opportunity to earn community service while helping to plan future teen and children's events, decorate the children's area, and more. Sometimes we brainstorm, sometimes we prepare crafts or clean. Each meeting is unique. New members are always welcome.  

Active member of Teen Advisory Group are emailed when there are other volunteer opportunities. Check out our calendar of events for the Teen Advisory Group schedule.

Summer Volunteering 2023

This summer the library is able to provide students entering grades 7-12 opportunities to assist library staff in various activities. There will be different types of tasks that students can help at and they will be able to sign up two weeks prior to each volunteer time. Volunteer sessions include: prepping materials for children's programs, assisting at certain children's activities, decorating bookends for the teen area among other activities. Most volunteer sessions will start the week of July 10th. To view upcoming dates and times, go to our online Calendar of Events and search "volunteer".
