High School Work Study

Do you have an interest in library work? Do you love to read? Do you enjoy helping others? Join our library team via the high school work-study program. Work study “interns” take on special projects and are able to learn more about what goes on “behind the scenes” at the library!

Volunteer at the Library

There’s always something fun going on at the library and we invite you to be a part of it! You can fulfill your volunteer requirements by helping with the Summer Reading Program and other special events, by serving on the Teen Advisory Board, organizing a book club or helping with general library work. Email Cameron at for more information.
