Teen Programs

Teen Volunteer Program

Students age 13 and older commit to weekly two or three hour shifts. 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. If you have any questions, please visit the library or contact Assistant Volunteer Coordinator Beth Yoder at byoder@laketravislibrary.org or (512) 263-2885.

The school year volunteer program follows the Lake Travis Independent School District academic calendar year. School year applications are available online beginning July 1st and are due July 31st.

The summer volunteer program follows the Lake Travis Independent School District summer break. Summer applications are available online beginning March 15th and are due April 30th.


Service Scholarship

Every year the Friends of the Library offers scholarships to graduating senior teen volunteers. The service scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors who have volunteered a minimum of 100 hours at the library and who are planning to continue their education. The Scholarship Application Form is available online and at the circulation desk beginning in January and is due the first Tuesday in April. If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact Danielle Wilson, Volunteer Coordinator, at dwilson@laketravislibrary.org.
