Become a Teen Volunteer


Teen volunteers at Central Library's Summer Reading Program kickoff

If you are at least 13 years old, you’re eligible to be a teen volunteer.

You can earn credit for school or club service requirements (Please note: JMRL does not accept court-ordered community service volunteers).

Your volunteer experience will be helpful when you begin looking for a job or filling out college applications.

Teen volunteers should be able to work independently, rather than only in a group setting.

Volunteer tasks, which vary according to the branch location, may include helping to prepare materials for programs or distribution (photocopying, laminating, cutting, folding, typing), assisting in creating displays, helping to set up the meeting room for programs, or helping with the summer reading program.


How to Apply

  • Complete this online form. It will be forwarded to your chosen branch, and a Library staff member will contact you when a volunteer position is available.
  • Or, download and print the application and bring it to the JMRL branch where you'd like to volunteer.

Please note that some branches may require more volunteers than others, or have a need only in summer.

If a volunteer position is not currently available at your chosen branch, your application will be kept on file for up to a year.

When you’re contacted to volunteer, you'll be given a paper application to be signed by your parent or guardian and returned to the Library.
