Make a Difference at Your Library
Due to COVID-19, we are currently not accepting new volunteers for opportunities hosted within the library building. All applications will be held on file for one (1) year from the day the Library resumes regular operations. In the meantime, virtual volunteer opportunities are available for interested applicants.
Please note that this list does not guarantee open availability. The library will keep applications on file for one (1) year; within that time frame, staff may contact applicants with follow-up details regarding volunteer opportunities.

Teen Volunteers do a variety of jobs at the library, including helping to prepare crafts, creating book displays, typing book reviews, and other interesting projects for the library. They also have great ideas, and they may assist the Teen Librarian by suggesting new materials, and brainstorming ideas for teen events.
Here’s how to get involved:
- Check with the Young Adult Librarian at the branch to see if there are volunteer positions available.
- Teen Volunteers need to be at least 12 years old and must complete a special application form (.pdf).
- When we receive your application the teen librarian will set up an interview with you.
- Please be willing to work shifts of 1-2 hours per week for at least 3-6 months.
- Schedules are worked out on an individual basis and may be worked around vacations and other commitments.
- For more information contact your teen librarian at your library.
