Teen Volunteers

Library Community Service
A healthy library depends on volunteers – people like you who are willing to share their skills because they care about their community. Volunteering your time and talents is a powerful way to influence the quality of services at the Wayne Public Library. There are volunteer opportunities for teens in the library during July & August; maybe you could help the library out! Click here for more information on volunteering.

Volunteering - In the Library

  • help prepare crafts and materials for children's programs.
When?
  • Help us for two hours each week...in the daytime during the months of July and August.

Volunteering helps you help others, and...
  • teaches you job skills and values
  • helps you complete community service hours as required by your school or other organization
  • is a great thing to add to your college, scholarship, or job applications
  • makes you feel good
  • places you in a great spot for doing homework or reading
