Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the library!

Teens entering grades 7-8 are invited to perform a variety of behind-the-scenes volunteer tasks. (High-schoolers who wish to volunteer can now join the Studio Volunteer Corps based out of Studio 270.)

Weekly one-hour timeslots are available. A limited number of teens will be accepted for each time slot, so please apply early.  An application is available in the Youth Center and must be completed in advance, with a parent or guardian's signature, to volunteer. For more information, please call Catherine Blair at (847) 608-5206.

Applications are available in the Youth Center beginning May 15.


    • Session 1: June 5 - July 1 (4 weeks)
    • Session 2: July 3 - July 29 (4 weeks; no meeting on July 4)

  • Wednesdays, 6-7 p.m.
