Teen Programs


Teen Volunteer Program

Students in the seventh to twelfth grades are invited to apply to volunteer at the library. Teen volunteers work directly with patrons and staff during regular weekly shifts, and assist with shelving, organizing, Circulation Desk tasks, and special projects. The program offers students a fun way to complete community service hours and the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship in their senior year. If interested, please complete a volunteer application or contact Volunteer Coordinator Danielle Wilson at dwilson@laketravislibrary.org or (512) 263-2885.

 


Teen Read Week Art Contest Winners

In celebration of Teen Read Week, the Lake Travis Community Library held an art contest for students in grades 6-12.  Lake Travis Middle School Sixth Grader Tess Van Daele placed first prize for her oil pastel piece entitled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“The winner had great composition and use of color and originality,” said judge Ann Neighbors.

Samuel Garvens was awarded second place for Katniss, inspired by Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy. And, Jennifer Good’s mixed-media piece Voyage to the Paper Town, inspired by John Green’s young adult novel won, third place.  The three winners were given cash prizes from the Friends of the Lake Travis Community Library.  The judges also named artists Grant Carter and Ellen Van Daele as honorable mentions.

 


Service Scholarship

Each year the Friends of the Lake Travis Community Library award scholarships to one or more graduating teen volunteers planning to continue his or her education. Applicants must have volunteered for a minimum of two semesters (summer counts as one semester) with at least 50 community service hours at the Lake Travis Community Library. In 2015, the number of required service hours will increase to 100.

In 2012, teen volunteers Autumn Good and Prem Menon were awarded $2,000 scholarships from the Friends of the Library. Autumn started volunteering when she was in seventh grade; she estimates she’s put in almost 700 hours at the library. Prem started in his freshman year and has worked about 300 volunteer hours. Congratulations to all of our graduating teen volunteers!
