Support the Library

VolunTeen Program

The library offers an on-going volunteer program for teens! You can volunteer at the library regularly, or as your schedule allows. We can provide a record of your volunteer service to meet school or extracurricular requirements.  We can’t provide volunteer opportunities for court-ordered volunteering.   

You must be between the ages of 11-17 or in grades 6-12 to become a VolunTeen.

For more information, contact Steven Marshall, Teen Services Manager at [email protected] or (815) 756-9568 ext. 3400.
