Teen Community Service

The Wimberley Village Library has an excellent Teen volunteer program. To be eligible for this program you must be 13 years old or older. All volunteers are required to fill out an application and acquire two teacher references. The general duties of teen volunteers are: assist with shelving, displays, straightening and assembling craft packages. Teen volunteers work in 2 to 3 hour shifts.This is a great opportunity to get some work experience, serve your community and learn about the library.

Community service hours are available by volunteering at the Wimberley Village Library.   Eligible teens will have completed the application, interview and training process before earning community service hours. Certificates of completion are awarded at the end of summer programming or during the school year when earned by teens.

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.  Attach festival link here.  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.
