Volunteer at the library this summer and make a difference. Volunteering is a great way to contribute to your community, develop new skills, and earn service hours. If you’ll be in grades 7–12 for the 2024–25 school year, apply to be a Junior Volunteer! During June and July, you’ll help with the popular Summer Library Club by signing up patrons and presenting rewards when they complete activities. 

Applications are now closed.
 Volunteers will be chosen via lottery from all qualifying applications.
If you are selected, you’ll receive an email from the library no later than Friday, April 19th.
