Teen Volunteering

Spring 2024 Multiple Hour Service Opportunities (3+ hours at a time)


A green slide with the text "Need volunteer hours? Consider signing up for the Friends of the Southbury Public Library Donation Day Saturday, March 16, 9:30am-12:30pm and/or 12:30pm-3:30pm."

One Day Volunteering Opportunity Saturday, March 16

The Friends of the Southbury Public Library are looking for teen volunteers ages 12 and over for their Donation Day on Saturday, March 16. This is a good opportunity to get multiple service hours at once, rather than the library's usual offering of one hour a week. For more information and to register to volunteer, please visit this Google Form; the form closes at 11:59pm on Wednesday, March 13.

Possible Opportunities in May

The Friends of the Southbury Public Library will be having a Book Sale this spring (in May), and tentatively may need help. If you would like to be told when dates are announced, please fill out this interest form to find out details (signing up to hear more is not a commitment). As soon as we have details, we will email you with information and where to sign up to volunteer if you are interested. This will likely not be until April 2024.

Regular Monthly Volunteer Opportunities (1-2.5 hours a month, every month)

Junior Friends of the Southbury Public Library: Every First Thursday from 6-7:30pm

With the Junior Friends, work on projects with the Friends of the Southbury Public Library in the Lower Level (Basement). By attending one meeting, you are not committed to attending every month (though you are welcome to!). Sign up is required for each meeting you are attending.

Teen Advisory Board: Every Last Tuesday from 6-7pm, Membership Application Required

With the Teen Advisory Board, shape the Teen Department with feedback about books and events. Each monthly meeting opens with a discussion about ideas for events, materials, and more and closes out with some special volunteer projects. A membership application is required and joining is committing to regular, long term attendance.

Long Term Weekly Volunteering (1 hour a week for several months or longer):

Currently, all our long term, weekly volunteer spots are full. We will reopen applications when we have openings.

All of this information is only for young adult volunteers. If you are an adult interested in volunteering at the library, please fill out our Adult Volunteer Application.
