How do I become a teen volunteer?

The first step in volunteering is submitting a Teen Volunteer Application. Click here to submit an online application. Typically, the Teen Librarian will contact you within 1-2 days. If you don't hear any thing within that time frame, please e-mail the Teen Librarian directly at teeninfo@mgpl.org.

What do Teen Volunteers do? 

That all depends on you! We will do our best to match you with opportunities and tasks best suited to your interests and availability as indicated in your volunteer application. Possible duties include: 

  • Assisting in programs and story-times for children
  • Helping with getting ready for craft programs
  • Decorating and organizing the Teen Space 
  • Cleaning books and other library materials
  • Reviewing teen books, movies, and more
  • Offering ideas for new teen programs and ways to improve teen services at the library
  • Attending TLC every month!

When can I volunteer/How many hours can I get? 

Once you become an official Teen Volunteer, we will schedule you accorting to your availability and library needs. For example, if you would like to volunteer on a weekly basis, we may be able to assign you to ongoing drop-in duties such as book cleaning. Volunteers for programs and other special duties are needed on a less regular basis. 

Why should I volunteer? 

Teen Volunteers earn valuable experience that looks great on college applications and resumes. Many Teen Volunteers ask for and receive letters of recommendation from the Teen Librarian. Volunteering at the library is also a great way to give back to your community while earning a great reputation. Volunteering is fun. The library treats teen volunteers to parties and other social gatherings throughout the year. 

 

*Summer Volunteering*

Interested in volunteering at the library this summer? We've developed a schedule of volunteer opportunities for teens to review and sign up for.  This summer, our volunteers will have the opportunity to work directly with our staff as they seek to develop interesting and engaging programs for our patrons. For example, you can help us build a planetarium, manage and create artistic pieces with children and assist with storytelling hours. It all starts with submitting a Teen Volunteer Application Click here to submit an online application.
