Review: Phoenix Public Library Volunteering

Review%3A+Phoenix+Public+Library+Volunteering

Buildings seemingly stuck in the last century, tall towers of books, a rack of 35 random DVDs, long rows of desktop computers — The Phoenix Public Libraries certainly give off a vibe.
But, a place full of laughter and delight, working here was always a good time.
The Phoenix Public Library Teen Volunteer Program is a great opportunity for teens to enjoy volunteering.
The Phoenix Public Library Teen Volunteer program is opened to 13-18 kids all across Phoenix. Each kid can choose their own library to work at and their hours every week.
Each library is super flexible and only requires teen volunteers to come in 2 hours a week. Volunteers usually work in the teen or children sections of the library.
Their jobs can range from shelving books and cleaning up the library to giving kids summer reading prizes and helping with story time.
Teen volunteers can work over the summer or during the school year.
Everyday while working in the program would feel like the best day
ever.
Almost everyday you would leave with a smile and would always be looking forward to your next shift.
Even if your day wasn’t as good as you wanted it to be, you would still feel accomplished and know that you made a difference in people’s lives.
The Phoenix Public Library incredibly created a Teen Volunteer program to help all teens across Phoenix find real world working experiences and helped them learn skills they would use at real jobs while still having the teens be creative and inventive.
When volunteering at any of the libraries, each staff member makes you feel welcomed and a part of the staff family.
The families that come into the library are very grateful for the help the teen volunteers provide, and the kids always would be so excited to see them.
The amazement on one kid’s face from getting a prize, or seeing the library for the first time would always make every shift worth it.
Students can ask their local libraries like Burton Barr, Acacia, or Yucca about any volunteer opportunities.
