Volunteering

For Teens (17 and younger)

Teen volunteers are the library’s helping hands! They help prepare crafts for storytime, tutor younger students, and bring energy to the Summer Reading Program.

To be considered, please fill out an initial inquiry to tell us a little more about your interest and availability for volunteering. Complete and submit the online form or scan or print and return the paper form in person at the information desk. Please give time for your application to be reviewed.

Applicants must be older than 11.

Questions for teen volunteers can be directed to Deirdre Johnson at 203.797.4505 ext. 7716 or by email at djohnson@danburylibrary.org.
