Teen Volunteer Program

Volunteer at the Lee Memorial Library

The library has several opportunities for teens who wish to volunteer at the library. Stop by the library for an application, or download one here. Participants under 18 must also have their parent or guardian sign a permission slip. All volunteers may request a letter totaling their contributions to the library at any point during their time of service. Please see the Youth Services Librarian for details. Below are descriptions of our ongoing programs:

  • Adopt a Shelf – AAS is our most flexible volunteer program. Members help keep the library neat by making sure our shelves are in order. Volunteer as much or as little as you’d like – you make your own hours! AAS is open to students in grades 7-12.
  • Teens Teach Kids – Children in Pre-K to 3rd Grade enroll in this literacy program that puts teen volunteers together with struggling readers for 30 minutes a week. Interested in volunteering for Spring 2016? See the Youth Services Librarian or email her at kids@allendale.bccls.org.
  • Teen Advisory Group (TAG) – Members of TAG help the library by recommending new purchases and programs. This group meets one Thursday a month from 3:30-4:30pm. Some activities include testing out new games, creating displays of YA books and media, making booklists, reviewing library materials, and more! Interested volunteers should fill out an application or see the Youth Services Librarian for more info. TAG is open to students in grades 7-12.
