Teen Volunteer Opportunities

Shelving Volunteers

Help us put DVDs, CDs, and books back on the shelves. If you are looking for a volunteer option with a lot of schedule flexibility, this is a good choice for you. Before you can volunteer as a shelver, you will need to attend an upcoming Teen Shelving Volunteer Orientation. (Register here). Complete the Teen Volunteer Application and bring it with you to your orientation. After you complete your orientation, sign up for a one-hour shift to come to the library and use your new shelving skills. Trained volunteers who need a review about shift signup can view this page. We ask that volunteers limit themselves to one shelving shift per week.

Teamwork, Collaboration, & Leadership Volunteers
We have opportunities for high school students who are motivated, collaborative, creative individuals who want to share their skills and perspectives to support library services for teens. Teen volunteers will work with library staff, community members, and peers for the entire semester to develop and implement new library services and programs for youth and young adults.
