Teen Volunteer Program
The library is always in need of volunteers! Students
age 13 and older
work weekly two to three hour shifts. Teens work directly with
patrons and staff by shelving, organizing, assisting with duties at
the circulation desk, and working on special projects. The volunteer program
offers students a fun way to complete community service hours and
the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship their senior year. If
you are interested in volunteering during a fall or spring semester,
please submit a
School Year Application Form. If you are interested in
volunteering at least one month during the summer, please complete a
Summer Application Form.
If you have any questions or would
like to apply for a position, please stop by the library
or contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Danielle Wilson,
email@example.com or (512) 263-2885.
The Friends of the Library recently awarded scholarships
to four graduating high school senior volunteers. The
service scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors
who have volunteered a minimum of 100 hours and who are
planning to continue their education.
