Teen Volunteer Program
Students in grades
7-12 are invited to apply for volunteer shifts at the
community library. Community service hours along with
fun, treats, and an opportunity to win a scholarship
during senior year are some of the perks of volunteer
work. Regular shifts include shelving books, working at the
circulation desk, processing books, and working on special projects. Fill out a
volunteer application and then schedule an interview by calling
the library at 263-2885.
The Friends of the Lake Travis Community Library offer a $2,000
service scholarship to a graduating teen volunteer planning to
continue his or her education at a university or vocational school. 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.
recipients were as follows: Adriana Thompson (pictured)
was awarded a Service Scholarship in the amount of
$2,000; Priyanka Gaur was awarded a Service Award in the
amount of $1,000; and both Stephen Wilkes and Will Cefai
were given Service Awards in the amount of $500. “We are
so proud of all our teen volunteers,” said Friends of
the Library President Diane Taylor. “It was our honor
and privilege to recognize four of them for particularly
outstanding service to the library and its patrons.”
Congratulations to all of the scholarship recipients!
