Teen Volunteering

The Westmont Public Library offers volunteer opportunities for teens in grades 6-12. A student is considered a teen the summer before they start 6th grade. Please read below carefully as our teen volunteering process has changed.

Contact the Teen Services Librarian at [email protected] or 630 869 6165 with any general questions regarding teen volunteering.

In-Person Volunteering 

Teens may now sign up for volunteer opportunities using our Event Calendar. Follow the link and look for events titled Teen Volunteer Hour. Sign up individually for each day and timeslot that interest you. Registration opens on the 15th of each month for the following months opportunities. 

Weekly Volunteering

Teens who are looking to build their resume and develop job skills can apply to volunteer at the Library. This process will include an orientation. Volunteers will be assigned a shift every week to assist librarians in tasks that may include preparing for programs, finding books, cleaning, and other general duties.

If interested in weekly volunteering fill out the application form. Application will remain open until spots are filled.

Digital Volunteering

Digital volunteers receive a list of tasks they can do online and at home. Volunteers can do as many tasks as they wish to achieve their hours in whatever time frame works best for them. Teens will be asked to re-apply when they have not submitted any tasks for one month.

If you are interested in being a teen digital volunteer, please fill out the application form.

Volunteer opportunities are for currently enrolled junior high and high school students only. Positions are unpaid. For more information on volunteering at the library, read our Volunteer and Community Service Policy.
