The library provides opportunities for teens to complete service hours during the school year. Interested in volunteering over the summer? Visit the library's Summer VolunTEENs page.


Who can volunteer?

Students in grades 7-12 who need to complete non-court appointed service hours. If you need to complete court appointed hours, please contact Natalie Williams at This email address is being protected from spambots.

What do volunteers do?

We have a variety of jobs that teen volunteers may be asked to do that include cleaning, prepping materials for programs, or inventorying kits. Not all opportunities are available at all times, and the availability of jobs is dependent on library need.


How do I sign-up to volunteer?

Fill out the teen volunteer form to be added to our list of teen volunteers. You will be asked a few questions about your interests, skills, how many hours you need, and any due dates for hours. The teen volunteer coordinator will contact volunteers as they are needed.
