Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the library! Teen volunteers (called VolunTEENS) help the library with children’s programming, office/computer work, program preparation and the Summer Reading Club. Volunteering has many benefits! It fosters responsibility, positive relationships and leadership skills. It also provides real-life work experience and provides service to the community. Volunteering can help teens when it comes to job and college applications—plus, we’re happy to write reference letters!
Volunteens must be 12-17 years old and have a parent or guardian's permission to volunteer. Additionally, they must read and agree to the terms of our Volunteen Conduct Agreement (which is included in the application). If you're 18 or older, check out our adult volunteer program! For more information on becoming a Volunteen, please contact our Volunteen Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Orange and Powell Branch Libraries are no longer accepting Volunteen applications, but you can still apply to help out at Delaware Main and Ostrander. Spaces are filling up quickly, so be sure to submit your application soon!
