Teen Volunteering

Volunteering at the Flower Mound Public Library gives teens the opportunity to utilize their skills, develop new skills, and provide a service for their community. Teen volunteers shelve books, help Library staff with preparation for programs, and assist with Summer Reading Club, as well as many other tasks.
