Volunteer Opportunities

Teen Volunteer Events

Looking to make a difference in your community? Consider volunteering at the Library! Our Library offers a wide range of rewarding opportunities for individuals who are passionate about books, learning and community engagement. As a volunteer, you'll have the chance to assist with various tasks from shelving books and organizing materials to helping members find information and recommending titles.

If you are volunteering in-person for service credit, an application is required. You can download an application at the buttons below and contact your branch location for information about open positions. Applications are only accepted when volunteer positions are available.

Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies is a fun way to earn hours! Work one-on-one with K-5 students to improve reading comprehension. Reading Buddies is designed to give kids in grades K-5 extra reading practice one-on-one, or in a group setting, with a Teen Buddy. Each week, a child will be paired up with a Teen Buddy during a 45-minute session which includes 30 minutes of reading followed by 15 minutes of playing word-related games. Teen Buddies become role models and help teach children the importance and enjoyment of becoming lifelong readers
