Teen Volunteer & Career Opportunities

The Mineola Memorial Library offers several volunteer opportunities for teenage students attending middle school or high school:

Adopt-A-Shelf Volunteers-Organized and detail-oriented volunteers in grades 6-12 are welcome to apply at the Children’s Desk to be an “adopt-a-shelf” volunteer. Volunteers will be responsible for keeping a section of the Children’s Room book collection in alphabetical or numerical order on a weekly basis.  Hours are flexible and volunteers will earn volunteer/community credit.

Book Buddies-Volunteers entering grades 6-12 read to children each week for 30 minutes, and commit to at least three sessions to receive community credit.  Book Buddies volunteer positions are only available during the summer.

Tween/Teen Advisory Group (TAG)-Volunteers in grades 5-12 will tell us what programs, books, music, video games, and movies you want @ the library during our monthly TAG meetings, which last for one hour each.  Refreshments will be served.  Volunteer/Community credit will be given at the end of the year, or upon request.
