Submitted by Pierce County Library

Teens have an opportunity to give back, have fun and earn service hours this summer as a volunteer with the Pierce County Library System’s first-ever Teen Library Corps.

The Teen Library Corps is open to teens, ages 14-18, and is available at nine Pierce County Library locations. Students will volunteer at a participating library from June 23 to September 2. Through volunteering, students gain valuable skills and experience that will reflect well on a college application and resume.
