Teen Volunteers

Our volunteers are here every week, rain or shine, and work very hard for their Library. 

They help us cover new books, do data entry, prepare for library programs, and perform many other tasks. 

Your library wouldn't have the quality of service it has without the aid of our volunteers.

See below for ways that you can volunteer!

Adult Literacy ClassHelp adult learners learn and improve their English, improve their reading and writing skills for the GED, or study to become a U.S. citizen. 

Tutors receive ample training before being assigned to a one-on-one tutoring assignment. Interested?
