Volunteering at the library is a great way to serve your community, gain work experience, and earn community service hours. Teen volunteers assist the library with shelving, storytime preparation, special events or programs, and more. If you love libraries, want to make a positive difference in the community, and enjoy working with people and children, then call or visit us to find out more information about the Ethel M.
