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.

Tech Buddies-High school volunteers in grades 8-12 will get volunteer credit for showing adults how to use their own pre-charged laptops, eReaders, iPads, tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, and any other devices.

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.
