Teen summer volunteer application deadline extended

The application deadline for teen volunteers needed this summer at all Fauquier County public libraries has been extended to Saturday, May 30.

Teen volunteers are needed to help with the children’s summer reading program, which begins June 20 and continues through Aug. 15. Some of the tasks teen volunteers will perform include helping children and parents with summer reading program registration, keeping the registration table stocked, assisting children and parents with entering the number of books they have read into the online book log, and lending a hand with crafts and programs.

Many teens find volunteering at the library is a great way to gain work experience while fulfilling community service or service learning hours, a graduation requirement for many high schools. Others volunteer because they love reading and libraries and some volunteer simply because they enjoy helping others.

Summer volunteers must attend a training session prior to the start of the reading program, so applicants will be called to schedule the training.
