SLC Volunteer Training

Want to volunteer at the Summer Library Club table this summer? Are you a teen 13+? We would love your help this summer! Help kids 5th grade and younger and their families participate in the summer library club by signing them up, checking them in, and giving out prizes. Attend one mandatory training session to learn expectations, a step-by-step overview of how to work the table, practice with the equipment, and how to sign up for shifts.

Attendance at one training session is required before you can work as an SLC Volunteer (even if you have volunteered in past years).

Please fill out the application and register/attend one of the training sessions.


Read books in 2024 and you could win $100! Download the Teens' Personal Reading Challenge and print it at home or pick one up from the Youth Services desk. Receive an entry for every 5 books you read.


Get live help filling out your FAFSA application. Experts can assist with any application questions (e.g. which line to use from their tax returns). Experts will never request sensitive personally identifiable information.
Available Monday through Friday, 1pm to 10pm
