Youth Department Volunteer Opportunities for Summer 2014
All three locations of the UAPL are seeking teen volunteers for this summer's “Fizz, Boom, Read” reading club.
High School Interns
The Youth Services Department at the Main Library is seeking up to five high school interns to help throughout our Summer Reading Program. Our Lane Road and Miller Park Branches are both seeking up to two high school interns for the same duties. Teens entering grades 10-12 or who graduate high school in 2014 are eligible to be an intern. The positions involve a commitment of 8-10 hours per week from June 4-August 2. Applicants will be required to apply, write an essay and be interviewed. Interns will earn service credit hours. Details can be found on the application. Applications are due by Thursday, May 1.
Students in grades 7-12 wishing to help register and award prizes at our summer reading table are encouraged to apply for a Junior Volunteer position. Tremont is seeking 50-60 junior volunteers while Lane and Miller both need 25-30. Volunteers will earn service hour credits. Details can be found on the application. Applications are due by May 19.
The Main Library is also looking for teens in grades 6-12 to help with our Book Buddies program. Teens are paired with a younger student and act as their “coach.” Applications for Book Buddies will be available Thursday, May 1 and will continue until we have enough Big Buddies. Volunteers will earn service hour credits.
Completed applications for all three positions can be dropped off at the preferred volunteer location by the stated deadlines.
