Become a VolunTeen. Image of six teen girls striking different poses.

If you are looking for volunteer hours, are responsible and hardworking, and care about the library, then you should be a VolunTeen! VolunTeens meet once a month to give feedback on library programs, help out with various projects (like getting a craft project ready for storytime), and contribute to the Teen Newsletter. VolunTeens are asked to help volunteer at several different library events each month as well. Not only are they giving back to the community, but they get work experience that can be added to a resume and can be eligible to earn a letter of recommendation. 
Fourth Tuesday of the month in Sept-April (third Tuesday in Dec and Mar),  5:00pm-6:00pm
