Fauquier County Public Library Seeks Teen Volunteers

(Warrenton, VA) March 27, 2015 —The Fauquier County Public Library is now accepting teen volunteer applications for the 2015 summer reading program. Positions are available at all three library locations.

Teen volunteers gain valuable work experience, earn service hours, meet graduation requirements or simply fill the need to give back to your community.

“We encourage applicants to think about their strengths and how they can best be used here at the library,” said Dawn Sowers, Public Services Manager. “Some teens are well suited to helping young children log their books, while others prefer to work behind the scenes. We try to match each volunteer up with tasks that are right for them. We certainly couldn’t make the summer reading program successful without their help.”

Forty-five teens volunteered during the 2014 summer reading program, contributing over 750 hours of valuable support.

Teens 13 years of age or older can pick up an application at any library location or online at fauquierlibrary.org. Applications are due no later than Thursday, April 30. Selected applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview and must complete a training session prior to June 1.

Fauquier County Public Library locations are: Warrenton central library, 11 Winchester St.; Bealeton branch library, 10877 Willow Drive North; and John Marshall branch library, 4133 Rectortown Road, Marshall. Call (540) 422-8500 for more information about library events or locations or visit us online at fauquierlibrary.org.
