Teens work directly with patrons and staff by shelving, organizing, assisting with duties at the circulation desk, and working on special projects. The volunteer program offers students a fun way to complete community service hours and the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship their senior year.

The school year volunteer program follows the Lake Travis Independent School District academic calendar year. The school year application is available online and in the library beginning July 1st and are due August 1st.

The summer volunteer program follows the Lake Travis Independent School District summer break. The summer application is available online and in the library beginning March 15th and are due May 1st.
