The library has volunteer programs for teens in grades eight through 12. Volunteering can be a satisfying way to invest your time and energy and use your special skills. If you would like to discuss other opportunities for teen engagement, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
TAB is an opportunity for Princeton high school students to develop valuable leadership skills while contributing to the library and the Princeton community. TAB members are active, creative, passionate advocates of the library and dedicate considerable time and energy to creating and executing projects that support the mission of the board of trustees.
TAB runs from October to June, and members are selected at the start of the school year.
Teen Summer Volunteer Program
The Teen Summer Volunteer program (TSV) is a seasonal program at the Princeton Public Library for youth entering 8th through 12th grade in the fall. It is coordinated with our annual summer reading programs and runs from June 15 to August 15, 2023. Our volunteers are library ambassadors that help us connect with teens in the community as well as support summer reading. Our variety of volunteering activities promote teen literacy and the library’s mission of advancing knowledge, encouraging dialogue, and providing opportunities for discovery and joy.
