A High School Volunteer is currently enrolled in grades 9 - 12. Teen volunteers help improve the library and work together to bring creative projects to life.
Below are our current remote volunteer opportunities for teens during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, these opportunities are not currently available to court-ordered volunteers.
In partnership with local animal shelters, we’re looking for volunteers to make toys for animals! One kit includes 1-2 toys and once completed and returned, it will result to 1 hour earned of volunteer service. Beginning August 3rd, stop by the Readers Advisory desk to pick up a kit.
If you’ve been creative or are feeling creative, submit that work to our gallery! We’re accepting drawings to 3D sculptures to even artistic food pictures! Each piece is worth 1 hour earned of volunteer service, with a limit of 3 hours. Submit your work at this link.
Write a review for a book, movie, or video game to be posted on our Teen Blog. Each review is worth 1 hour earned of volunteer services, with a limit of 5 hours. Visit this link for movie/video game review guidelines, and visit this link for book review guidelines.
Submit something to the #WeWereHere Project, which is aimed to be a repository of teen voices and stories during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Berwyn Public Library is a community partner and will assign volunteer hours on a project by project basis. Learn more about the project here.
Learn more about race and anti-racism. Read or watch something from our Fighting Racism lists and write a review. Each book read plus review will be worth five volunteer hours, and each movie watched plus review will be worth three volunteer hours.

Contact your representatives! Even if you’re not old enough to vote, everyone is old enough to let their representatives know what they think. Visit this link for a list of your representatives with contact information and ideas for current issues to address. Please share a copy of your letter/or proof of your call in order to get service hours. Each letter or call is worth 1 hour earned of volunteer service, with a limit of 5 hours.
