Teen Volunteers

Teen Shelver applications are being accepted for Spring 2024.


Applications are due March 15th, 2024.

Applications received after this date will not be accepted. Previous teen volunteers must fill out a new application.

We request a commitment from shelvers of at least 2 hours per week for 10 weeks between March 25th-May 27th.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at PCL!

Get professional working experience and community service hours for your resume! We accept mature students entering 8th grade, age 13 and older, in the fall.

Each year, PCL offers seasonal volunteer positions. Volunteer positions allow teens to support the library community and gain experience working in a professional environment. The teen volunteer program can be listed on college resumes and counted as community service hours for schools, religious organizations, scouts, etc.

For questions about the program, email Teen Services at teens@parklandlibrary.org
