Township library seeks summer teen volunteers
Is your teen looking for a something to do this summer, and considering a summer volunteer opportunity?
The Bloomfield Township Public Library has the ticket. They are looking for teen volunteers, ages 14–18 and attending high school this coming fall, for the summer of 2023.
“This is a great opportunity for teens to help out the library and their community,” said Patricia Ballard, youth services librarian. “Students can build their resume for college or job applications and earn community service hours.”
All teen volunteers are required to attend a one-hour orientation where the library will go over what the volunteer opportunity is all about, how to schedule shifts, and answer questions. The two orientation dates are Tuesday, May 23, 7 p.m.–8 p.m. or Saturday, June 3, 10 a.m.–11 a..m.
Volunteers are required to attend only one of these trainings. If the volunteer is unable to attend either date or needs to request accessibility accommodations, please contact the teen volunteer coordinator at email@example.com.
Eligible teens must reside in Bloomfield Township or be enrolled in the Bloomfield Hills School District. Teen volunteers will assist staff during children’s programs, prep materials for crafts, update displays and perform many other tasks. All interested teen summer volunteers should fill out the Teen Summer Volunteer Form for 2023 available at btpl.org/youth or at the Library Welcome, Adult, or Youth Desks.
