Help us and help you!
The Oak Creek Public Library relies on a strong team of volunteers to ensure that the library runs smoothly. Teens play a very important role in volunteering. The Oak Creek Public Library offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for teens in 7th-12th grades. Opportunities range from one-time special events to regular shifts, especially during the summer months.
Volunteers under 18 years of age MUST fill out the application below and have a parent or legal guardian complete the consent form found at the bottom of this page. If you are over the age of 18, and no longer in high school, please consider becoming a member of the Friends of the Library.
We do not currently offer volunteer opportunities to individuals seeking court-ordered community service.
Step 1: Teen Volunteer Application*
Before filling out the Teen Volunteer Application, please read over the Volunteer Policy*.
Step 2: Teen Volunteer Orientation
After you submit the teen volunteer application, you are welcome to register for the Teen Volunteer Orientation which will take place on Saturday, August 24th, 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.; register at: https://oakcreeklibrary.org/events/. Registration begins on Monday, July 29th. Orientation is required for new volunteers and recommended for returning volunteers.
Step 3: Teen Volunteer Handbook and Consent Forms
You and your parent/guardian must sign the Teen Volunteer Handbook and Consent Forms (if you are under the age of 18) and return them to the Oak Creek Public Library before signing up for shifts. Feel free to read the handbook, sign the consent forms, and turn them in at the Teen Volunteer Orientation. Forms will also be available at the orientation.
