The Library accepts volunteers in grades 7-12.
Please contact Jane Gov, Youth Services Librarian at (626) 744-4246, email@example.com to inquire about teen volunteer opportunities at the Central Library. If you are interested in volunteering at a branch library please contact the branch directly (branch locations and hours).
Looking to be more involved in your community? Apply to be on the Teen Advisory Board! TAB members are expected to help plan and assist with special programs, recommend books to purchase, assist in promotions, book reviews, and lots, lots more. Make your opinions count! This is perfect for those seeking to gain leadership and work experience.
This year's TAB term starts Feb. 2014 and will assist with preparations for both the Teen and Children's Summer Reading Challenge--including help children with sign ups and reward prizes, attend, and help plan teen programs.
Need to fulfill lots of hours or seeking a “regular” weekly volunteer shift? We have plenty of tasks in the library for both short-term and long-term volunteers. Teen volunteers will be assigned a variety of tasks such as searching for books, alphabetizing, organizing items, mending books, and crafts. Please indicate that you would like to work a regular weekly shift when you turn in your application!
