About the Teen Department

The Augusta County Library offers an area just for teens. The Teen Zone in Fishersville features its own selection of books, books on CD, Playaways, magazines and internet computers. Relax in an oversized comfy chair and enjoy reading, collaborate with classmates on school assignments or participate in one of the teen programs available at the library. And don’t worry – if you can’t make it to Fishersville, our outlying locations have special collections put together for teens, too. Stop by and ask for more details.


Teen Volunteer Opportunities at the Library

Do you need something to do after school? Or during the summer?
Volunteer with us and give back to your library and your community!

Our 2014 summer session for volunteering is full, but we encourage you to apply at the start of the 2014-2015 school year!

As a teen volunteer…

…Based on your interests and talents, you will be assisting for one hour weekly with children’s programs, helping with the day to day business of the library, meeting new people, and earning service hours for school. Teen volunteers play an important role at the library!

As a volunteer you should have…

• An interest in helping others.

• Willingness to perform a variety of projects and tasks.

• Dependability: willingness to complete assigned projects/tasks in a timely fashion.

• Capable of following instructions and working independently.

• Ability to work cooperatively with other volunteers and staff members.

• Respect for others and follow the Augusta County Library policies.

Application Process

Teens between the ages of 11 and 18 are eligible to apply. We will review your application and get in touch with you as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot always accommodate volunteers: sometimes the library’s needs do not match up with a particular volunteer’s skill set or at times we are unable to provide adequate supervision due to our limited staffing. If you are not accepted, we encourage you to apply again in the future.

Best Wishes,

Children’s Department
