For Teens

 Now Accepting Teen Summer Volunteer Applications

The Teen Volunteer Program is for youth ages 12-17 entering grades 7-12.  It is an opportunity for teens to interact with people of all ages, demonstrate cooperation and responsibility, and develop job skills and good work habits.

Volunteers are vital to the success of the Henry County Public Library Summer Learning Program.  If you are interested and can commit to 10 or more volunteer hours between May 30 and July 31, please read all the information and complete the attached form. Return it to the Henry County Public Library by the deadline.

Teen Volunteers who complete their volunteer work will receive a certificate and an invitation to a special recognition gathering for Teen Volunteers.  All volunteers will be given an official volunteer t-shirt.

Per library policy, all volunteers, regardless of age, must have a background check on file at the library.  Background checks will be paid for by the library. If you are under 13 or have previously participated in the Teen Summer Volunteer Program you do not need a new background check. Background check forms will be filled out upon acceptance into the program.

Deadline:  Please read the downloadable application carefully and return the signed contract to the Henry County Public Library no later than Friday, May 6. Applications can be turned in at the library or emailed to suzanne@henrylibrary.org.  Applicants who meet the requirement for the program will receive a call for an interview by May 11.  Volunteers chosen for the program will be required to attend a special volunteer orientation prior to their first shift.

Application: 2022 Volunteer Application
