Members of the Teen Council assist the Junior Librarians with programs — hosting games, putting on plays, or helping with the summer reading program. Members advise the Teen Librarian about book and music purchases, help with office work and are integral to planning teen programs.
The Teen Council of the Danbury Library meets the first Monday of each month in the Story Corner. Although a minimum number of volunteer hours is not required, commitment and follow-up is expected when a volunteer agrees to participate. Preference is given to active members when choosing volunteer activities.
Volunteers may begin any time after 6th grade by turning in all the completed forms. You are required to submit three (3) references. 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 below or pick up copies on the 2nd floor Junior Library at the information desk.
