Call for Volunteers
The library has many volunteer opportunities available for teens. Volunteer projects can take anywhere from a few hours to a few months to complete. There are even on-going long-term volunteer opportunities available.
Applying to become a teen volunteer is easy. Fill out an online application, call the volunteer coordinator Ms. Bumstead at (805) 449-2660 ext. 7325, or stop by the library for more information.
Many of our teen volunteers assist staff with the library's Summer and Teen Reading Clubs. Summer volunteers must be fourteen or older and willing to donate at least three or more hours per week. Teen volunteers register club participants, help out at programs and staff the summer and teen reading desks.
Some teens participate in the library's teen advisory group called TOTAL (Thousand Oaks Library Teen Advisory League). Teens involved with TOTAL meet monthly during the school year and advise library staff about library services and programs for teens. In addition to the advisory role, in the past TOTAL teens have made presentations to City Council, organized library programs for teens and assisted at various library events.
Teen volunteers are an integral part of our library service.
