Volunteer Application - PDF


We are sorry, but we have filled all of our slots for teen volunteers for the summer. Please check back next year.


Registration is required and space is limited.

Please call (989) 837-3466 if you have questions :

  • Friday, June 7 @ 4 pm
  • Saturday, June 8 @ 2 pm

During each orientation session, we will brief you on staffing the summer reading prize desk, usher duties, special program days, and other volunteer offerings. This will be your time to sign up for volunteer shifts, so have your calendars ready! It will be helpful for you to know the dates of your family vacations and all other commitments you have for the summer. Please complete a Grace A. Dow Memorial Library Volunteer Application and bring it with you to the orientation session.

Some of the opportunities available this summer.

Summer Reading Prize Table      Reward participants for meeting their reading goals and help with special projects. Summer Reading Prize Table hours will be 9:30 am - 8:30 pm Monday-Friday, and 10 am - 5 pm on Saturday. Two hour shifts are available.

Movie Usher      Greet patrons, assist with seating, and report attendance. Movies are shown on Wednesday mornings @ 10 am and Friday afternoons @ 2 pm. Time commitment is roughly 2 hours.

Program Assistant      Assist with crafts, games, or activities in one of our summer programs. Help us to kick off summer reading this year with indoor and outdoor activities at our Summer ShinDIG on June 13. Move and Groove will take place on Thursday mornings, and our annual Touch-a-Truck Day will be held July 25.

We are looking forward to having you as a Volunteen this summer! See you at one of the orientations!
