Teen Services

Calling All Teen Volunteers!

The Comaine Library loves our teen volunteers!  We get tons of compliments throughout the year about what a wonderful job our teens do with helping out with programs, the Friends of the Library booksales and other library events.  Anyone in 7th through 12th grade can be a volunteer, even if you have never done it before!

All of our weekly volunteer slots are filled, but we do have a few openings for special volunteers left.  Special volunteers come in to help with special projects when needed.  This is perfect for someone who has a busy schedule because you can pick and choose which days you want to volunteer.  Also, teens can earn volunteer hours simply by coming to a program at or sponsored by the Cromaine Library.  These include TAB, the Teen Book Club, and any teen or adult program.  Just fill out an application and we'll get you set up!

Even if you volunteered over the summer, you need to fill out a separate application to become a school-year volunteer. Applications are available at the library or upon request via email attachment.  Simply send an email requesting an application to Carolyn at cmccullough@cromaine.org.  You can fill it out and send it right back or drop off your filled out application to the Youth Desk.  Check out CromaineTAB on Facebook for updates and volunteer opportunities!
