Volunteering @ Your Library

Teen Volunteers

This program designed for the long-term volunteer. Volunteers work with Youth Services librarians to prepare for programs (cutting out shapes, etc.) and to keep the department in working order (straightening books, etc.).

*Please note that many like you would like to help us, but there are limited slots. Apply a couple months before the hours are due to increase your chance of becoming a volunteer in time.


Fill out an application either in-person or online. Your parent/guardian also needs to sign a permission slip allowing you to volunteer. Turn it in at the Youth Services' Desk and schedule an interview. Volunteers may only work two two-hour shifts a week. Volunteers must have an interview with Katie before being accepted into the program. Priority is given to students who must complete volunteer hours for either school or another organization.


Summer Reading Volunteers

Summer reading volunteering for 2012 will come sooner than you think! Applications will be available around May, so don't forget to stay updated. Please visit the Youth Services desk or call (708) 343-3391, ext. 7484 for more information!
