Teen Volunteering

Volunteering can be a satisfying way to invest your time and energy and use your special skills. The library has volunteer programs for teens in grades eight through twelve. If you would like to discuss other opportunities for teen engagement, please feel free to email us at teenvolunteer@princetonlibrary.org.

Teen Summer Volunteer Program

Teen Summer Volunteers support our youth programming during Summer Reading. Participants work with a small group of peers to plan and execute a fun, large-scale library program for children, with the support of library staff, as well as participate in other project-based Youth Services tasks.
