Teen Volunteer Programs
The general duties of teen volunteers are assist with shelving, straightening shelves, displays and special projects as assigned. Teen volunteers work 2 to 3 hour weekly shifts. Volunteering is a great opportunity to gain work experience, earn community service hours, serve your community and learn about the library.

Teens are encouraged to apply as set-up and tear-down for the fast-paced children’s programs like Wacky Wednesdays! Story Time and Hands on Fun. Teens can also volunteer as solo shelvers, assist with special projects, or ride as a group on the Library’s July 4th Float.
Teens wanting to volunteer during the school year are eligible for positions like shelving and set-up and tear-down for children’s programs like Story Time and Discovery Fridays during and after-school hours.
Applications are available year-round and online for interested teens. Signed and completed applications may be returned to the circulation desk at the library.

Teen Saturdays Summer Programming
Teen Saturdays is open to teens 13 to 17 years of age and is held each Saturday from 2 – 4 PM during June and July. During these eight sessions, the teens will participate in STEM-based learning workshops or collaborate in special projects that benefit the community at large.
SPECIAL PROJECT FOR SUMMER 2019:
Learn about what makes cars tick and how to do minor repairs by helping completely rebuild and restore a real full size Go-Kart! Teens will get hands-on experience planning the restoration, then doing the engine and bodywork themselves.
Meanwhile, a team of teens will produce a video about the project to show online and at the annual Wimberley Film Festival held in 2020. Once the Go-Kart is complete, it will be sold at auction and the funds will directly benefit the Teen or Young Adult program at the library.
