As a teen volunteer at the Dickinson Public Library, a librarian will assign various tasks to complete during your volunteer hours. Once tasks are completed and checked by a librarian, they may assign other tasks until you have completed your day volunteer hours.
Teens may assist in different areas of the library, and some typical duties may include:
Students, grades 8-12, who live in Dickinson may apply to volunteer. Volunteers will need to have a library card and be in good standing with the library. The library will not accept volunteers who are required to do court-ordered community service.
Volunteers may not volunteer during school hours, and after-school volunteer hours are limited to no more than eight hours a week. Volunteers will need to sign in and out every time they arrive at the library.
Once the application is submitted, the teen librarian will review and follow up with a phone call to discuss when you can start volunteering at the library. If you do not have a library card when the application is submitted, during the follow up you will be asked to sign up either in person or online through our online library card registration.
