Quarterly Volunteer Opportunities


Teen volunteer assignments are given out each quarter. Quarters run from October - December, January - March, April - June and July - September.

All interested teens between the ages of 13 – 17 years old will need to register online for each quarter at hbpl.org, Calendar of Events, Teen Volunteer Schedule.  They must submit a new application each quarter and attend that quarterly workshop. Applications are available online one month before the workshop and must be turned in to the Children’s Desk by the application deadline. Late applications will not be accepted. Teens who do not attend the workshop will not be able to volunteer that quarter. Even if teens have previously volunteered at the library, quarterly workshop attendance is still required.  A link with the volunteer time slots will be emailed out each quarter to the teens who attended that workshop.  (Please note that we do not accept Court Ordered Service Volunteers.)

Quarterly volunteering includes:

Book Shelving
Children’s Program Assistance/Prep
Craft Storytime Helper
Lego Club Helper
Star Reader
Teen Advisory Board Member

Homework Club Volunteers (Teens)

Teens who would like to be a Homework Club Helper need to be a junior or senior in High School and have a B+ or higher grade average. Homework Club meets Monday – Wednesday 3:30 – 5:00 during the school year only and does not meet during school breaks.

Interested teens can contact Melissa Ronning at [email protected]

Summer Reading Program Volunteers

Teens who are interested in being a Summer Reading Program volunteer will need to attend a special workshop in June. This training is different from the Quarterly Workshop and is mandatory. Summer Reading Volunteers work at our Reading Program Tables registering people in the reading program, logging reading numbers online, and handing out reading rewards.  Register @ hbpl.org, Calendar of Events, Teen Volunteer Schedule starting May 1 for Reading Table time slots.
