Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library

Teen Volunteer


The DC Public Library maintains a dedicated group of teen volunteers, ages 14-18. Teen volunteers play a crucial role at the DC Public Library. They help create displays and booklists, shelve materials, assist with children's programs, setup activities, photo copy library forms and much more. This is a great opportunity to learn valuable job-related skills, help out within your community, gain work experience, promote literacy, and meet new people.
