Teen Volunteering

Volunteering can be a satisfying way to invest your time and energy and use your special skills. The library has volunteering opportunities throughout the year 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.

Teen Advisory Board

The mission of the Princeton Public Library Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is to strengthen the bridge between the teen community and the library, to encourage teen participation, and to share the diverse ideas, interests and voices of teens.

The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) of the Princeton Public Library is an opportunity for Princeton high school students to develop valuable leadership skills while contributing to the Library and the Princeton community.
