Are you a teen looking for volunteer experience? The Library has various volunteer opportunities in the Youth Services department throughout the year. During the summer, the department needs help registering children in the summer reading club, assisting at programs, and distributing summer reading club incentives. During the school year help is needed in our LEGO Club, in our KidsLab, and at special events such as the fall Wisconsin Science Festival and the spring Art Reception.

Our next teen volunteer opportunity begins this summer. To become a volunteer, you must attend a Teen Volunteer Orientation (see below). After completing an application, you will be emailed an invitation to view volunteer shifts you may sign up for through the online volunteer management service Once you’ve signed up to volunteer for a specific shift or program, SignUp will email you a reminder of that commitment!
