Teen Events Team

Are you a creative and community-minded teen who wants to make a real impact at your library? Join the WPL Teen Events Team and help plan and host exciting programs and events for your fellow teens! Whether you're into art, program design, or just love getting involved, we've got a place for you. You'll have the chance to organize fun activities, help with events, and provide friendly service. Plus, we're all about giving back to the community through projects like food drives and climate action initiatives. If you're ready to make a difference, this is the team for you!  

Plus, Teen Events Team members receive volunteer hours for their time on the team.

Thank you for your interest in the Teen Events Team. We are currently not accepting new teen volunteers. Please check back in the future for further opportunities.
