School year volunteer opportunities
The library is looking for volunteers in grade 6-12 who are willing to teach chess to younger kids and play games with them on Tuesday evenings. We’re also looking for book reviewers and program assistants. Sound like fun? Fill out a volunteer application (click here for pdf), and we’ll contact you to schedule training.

- Desk assistant: Teens register children for the reading program, assist children with their reading logs and prizes.
- Program assistant: Teens help out at a variety of programs, including Book Buddies (reading one-on-one with kids).
- Story reader: Teens read stories to children and more.
