Teen Volunteers Needed for Summer Reading Program

Goleta Valley Library’s Summer Reading Program “Adventure Begins at Your Library!” will kick off this year on Saturday, June 15th and run through Saturday, July 27th – and we need your help to make it a success! We are looking for motivated, book-loving teens (ages 14-17) to volunteer during our Summer Reading Program. Teens will be able to earn community service hours by awarding prizes to youth participants, helping with special events, and getting involved in their community!

To apply to become a teen volunteer, simply complete the application packet online or pick one up in person at 500 N. Fairview Avenue during open hours. Completed applications can be emailed to goletavalleylibrary@cityofgoleta.org or dropped off at the circulation desk.

Then, attend one of our orientation sessions at the library to receive volunteer training:

  • Saturday, May 25 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, May 28 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 1 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
