Volunteer at the Library

We always have multiple opportunities for teens to help out at the Library. Sign-up to help, have fun and earn community service hours--all at the same time! Some things you can do:

  • Book Besties--on Tuesdays at our Main Library, starting January 12th from 4:15-5:15. You can sign-up to be a reading mentor to younger kids, ages 4-8.
  • Maker Mondays--on Mondays at our Main Library for high school age volunteers, starting January 5th from 5:00-6:30. Help younger kids, age 8-12 with STEM projects each week!
  • Tinker Tuesdays--this is a new program at our branch libraries, South & Mahan. We need teen volunteers to help younger kids with STEM-based projects on Tuesdays in January from 4-5 pm.
