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:

- 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
