Looking for work to fulfill a school or service group community service requirement? The library has plenty of opportunities for VolunTeens — during the school year and in the summer! Find out more by contacting The Youth Services librarians (in the Children’s Room) at 518-477-7476, menu option 3.
PLEASE NOTE: We no longer accept teen volunteers with court mandated community service.
School Year VolunTeen Program
Whether you are interested in helping out on a regular basis or simply meeting a small requirement for a class or club, you will need to print and fill out a School Year VolunTeen Application. Once you turn in your application (to a Youth Services Librarian in the Children’s Room), you will be contacted about scheduling shifts.
