OPPORTUNITIES FOR TEENS:
We have had great success with teen volunteers over the years. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate everyone, and our options are very limited.

REQUIREMENTS for those wishing to earn community service hours

1. The teen's family has a membership in the Friends of the Saratoga Libraries (FSL)
2. Teen and family are residents of Saratoga, CA.
3. Once a job & time is set, the teen must take responsibility to show up as expected, since our regular volunteers often have to modify their own schedule to accommodate the teen's. In an emergency, the teen or family will contact the volunteer in charge.

INFORMATION & OPTIONS Summer months allow more volunteer opportunities for teens. Check with your school to see if you can earn your hours ahead of time.
During the school year, opportunities may include:
SORTING BOOKS in the Saratoga Library, if the teen's schedule can dovetail with that of our volunteer supervisor. This is a weekly 2-hour commitment, for at least 3 successive weeks.
PAPERBACK SALES: Currently the sales are held every 3 months in the Saratoga Library. Jobs include helping with set-up on Friday afternoon 3:30-5:30; Clean-up on Sunday afternoon 5:00-6:00. The sales are scheduled for the last weekend in October, January, April and July. Check our website for updates.
BOOK-GO-ROUND store maintenance: 1 hour, once a week, after the store closes, usually 5:30-6:30. Jobs might include vacuuming, dusting, washing windows, etc. Wow! this would be great.

Please E-MAIL US REGARDING YOUR VOLUNTEER REQUEST, AND INCLUDE TEEN'S NAME, PHONE NUMBER, AVAILABILITY, AREA OF INTEREST (FROM ABOVE LIST)

NOTE: If a parent and teen wish to take a regular shift at the Book-Go-Round on a ongoing basis (2.5 hours, once a month for at least 6 months), we would be glad to have them, if an opening is available.
