Join in the fun by applying for our Summer Reading Teen Volunteer program. The volunteer program, open to teens entering grades 7th-12th, is a great way to meet other teens, gain work experience, and earn service hours. If you’re interested in volunteering, you will need:

  • A Prairie Trails Public Library card
  • Teen Summer Reading Volunteer Application form

(MUST be completed and returned to the Youth Services Department by Tuesday, May 31st)

The Summer Reading Teen Volunteer program has a limit of 100 spaces. The spaces will be filled as completed applications are turned in to the library. By turning in this application you are committing to at least four weeks of volunteering over the summer. If you will be unable to commit to four weeks due to vacations or other obligations, we cannot consider your application. (Volunteer hours will be completed between Monday, June 13th and Tuesday, August 2nd.)

Anyone who volunteers needs to attend a training session to learn the basics and expectations. During this session you will also receive your volunteer schedule and t-shirt. Please mark the session on the application that works best for your schedule. Volunteers will receive a phone call confirming their spot in the program and their training session.

Volunteer Training Dates

Tuesday, June 7th at 7pm

Wednesday, June 8th at 3pm

Thursday, June 9th at 5pm

Teen volunteers will be rewarded for their hard work. Each volunteer will receive raffle tickets at the completion of each of their scheduled shifts for a chance to win weekly gift cards! The conclusion of summer reading will include a pizza party on Thursday, August 4th at 1pm. Any forms that need to be signed for hours will be done at the pizza party.
