Become a Volunteer!

Apply Now

The Kirkwood Public Library values teen volunteers.  They perform a variety of tasks for the library – from planning and designing programs and events to building book trailers and blog posts to helping with other library services.  If you are a teen interested in volunteering please consider applying for one of these positions:

  • Summer Teen Volunteers: Help build summer programming for the Library.  Make flyers, do prep work for activities and help make sure summer reading at KPL runs smoothly
  • Reading Buddies: Every summer KPL pairs young readers with teens to work on literacy skills.  Be a part of this team!
  • Year Round Volunteer: Help plan programming and learn shelving along with smaller projects to keep the Library moving.
  • Teen Advisory Board Member: The teen advisory board is a school-year long commitment to plan programs and serve as a voice for teens at the Library.  You can join at Kirkwood High School, Nipher Middle School, and North Middle School

If any of these volunteer positions sound interesting to you, apply to be a teen volunteer.
