Teen Volunteer Program
The library is always in need of volunteers! Students age 13 and older commit to weekly two to 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.
