TEENS / CLUB 11/17

Volunteer

We always welcome teen volunteers at Desert Foothills Library.  Need community service hours or just love the library? Fill out our Volunteer Application to get involved.

  • Regular volunteers. Many of our teen volunteers work regular 2 hour shifts throughout the week. Volunteers participate in many tasks, from sorting and shelving to decorating and creating displays to helping with events
  • One time volunteers. If you need a set amount of service hours (to fulfill a school or NHS requirement, etc.), we will work with you to schedule as needed, if we have opportunities available.

Teen Task Force

This is YOUR library. Join our Teen Task Force to plan programs, contribute to the library, and cultivate our teen space. You don’t have to be a current volunteer to join!

Teen Task Force meets once a month in the teen room. Meetings are a great time to find out about volunteering if interested, meet your librarians and other teens at the library, eat snacks, tell us what you want at Desert Foothills Library, and generally have a great time.
