VolunTEENs

WPPL accepts applications for energetic and creative teens to help with a variety of tasks and programs around the Library during two sessions every year: the summer and the academic school year. As space permits, we do accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the school year.

This is a great opportunity for teens in grades 8-12 to give back to their community, get service hours in a fun, relaxed environment, and boost their college applications!

Learn more about volunteering

Our Summer 2024 session is full. Check back here in late August for our academic school year (2024-25) application. Contact Youth Services with questions.
