The Teen Council of the Danbury Library meets the first Monday of each
month in the LTC Conference Room. Although a minimum number of volunteer
hours is not required, commitment and follow-up is expected when a
volunteer agrees to participate. Also, active members receive preference
on volunteer activities.
Volunteers may begin any time after 6th grade by turning in all the completed forms. You can complete The Application and return it via email. You are required to submit three (3) references (form). The reference may be faxed, emailed or simply call directly to the Teen Librarian, Dymphna Harrigan (203-797-4528). The Health Form must be completed by your health care provider before you begin volunteering. Although it is not necessary that a parent or guardian give permission to have your picture taken, it is necessary that they complete the Picture Permission form. When all forms are returned, you will be added to the list of active teen volunteers. You may download the forms linked above or pick up copies on the 2nd floor Junior Library at the information desk.
Teens assist the Junior Librarians with programs by running games or putting on plays, and teen volunteers perform a major role in
the Summer Reading Program. Teens also advise the Teen Librarian with
book and music purchases and help with office work and teen program
planning. Teens do make it happen at the Danbury Library.
For more information and to find out how you can get involved, contact the Teen Librarian, Dymphna Harrigan, at 203-797-4528 or by e-mail
If you are in 5th grade, you may submit your application after January.
