Volunteer With Us!


We are no longer accepting applications for summer 2016 volunteers.

Give back your community, help foster literacy and make great friends! Become a VolunTeen!

The Allen Public Library welcomes the help of VolunTeens with a variety of volunteer opportunities for students ages 13 to 18.  VolunTeens are selected twice a year: in May for summer positions and in August for school year positions.

Due to the number of applicants, we cannot accept every teen who applies. Candidates will be considered based on prior experience, qualifications and compatibility with Library needs.

Please see the 'Volunteer in the Community' tab below for additional volunteer opportunities.
