Community Service for High School Students

Teens contribute their energy & talents in 3 different ways at Brownell Library.

Some teens become members of the Teen Advisory Board, which meets the third Tuesday of each month to plan activities for teens, younger students, or other community members. The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) runs the monthly family movie. Some teens become Reading Buddies or help with other events during the Summer Reading Program.

Some teens offer a one time event or class in the library, individually or coordinating with the Senior Center or Teen Center, focusing on an area they are particularly interested in.

Other teens become Teen Volunteers and help Librarians with behind the scene tasks. Teen Volunteers help with shelf reading and shelving books, writing order cards, taking inventory of book lists on our library catalog, bulletin boards, and various other jobs. Teen Volunteers have to make a six month commitment to come every week for a 2 hour shift. An application and background check are required. If accepted, Librarians will provide training.

All community service is valuable for personal fulfillment, and may also count toward school credit and college or job applications.

After you fill our an application and turn it in, a librarian will contact you. Call 878-6956 if you have any questions.

Middle School Students can help out with programs during the summer and participate in LEEP.
