Current Opportunities


Program Support Volunteer (Ages 11-Adult):

Program Support volunteers assist library staff members with a variety of staff-led programs. Volunteers may be asked to help with setup/teardown, attendee sign-in, assisting with an activity, hospitality, wayfinding, or other duties. Volunteers supporting children’s or family programs may be ages 11 and up, but we may restrict the minimum volunteer age for specific programs and needs.


Summer Reading Prize Station Volunteer at Fishers and/or Noblesville (Ages 14-Adult):

Summer Reading Prize Station Volunteers assist with registering patrons for the Summer Reading Program and prize redemption when library patrons meet Summer Reading goals. Once onboarding is complete, volunteers will be able to schedule themselves for shifts between June 1-July 31 using the volunteer portal.


Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

Teen Advisory Board is the pulse of the teen community at the library. TAB members’ positive thoughts and ideas are heavily relied upon to create appropriate and engaging programs for teens. TAB members might be asked to weigh in on any topic that relates to library service for teens. Teens receive volunteer time for participating in monthly meetings. Volunteers must be enrolled in grades 6-12. TAB volunteers must fill out a TAB application as well as a general volunteer application.


Teens' Top Ten Reviewer

The Teens’ Top Ten (TTT) is a national teen choice book list where teens nominate and vote on their favorite books of the previous year. We are one of the few groups across the US chosen to help create the list for next year! Teens will read books published in the current year and fill out a review form. They will receive 1 volunteer hour per hundred pages (rounded) read once the review is posted. Learn more about the Teens’ Top Ten Program. Volunteers must be ages 12-18.


Tidying Teens Volunteers

Tidying Teens volunteers help keep the library tidy, which may include dusting shelves, straightening books, notifying staff of problem areas, and other tasks. Volunteers do not shelve books. This volunteer assignment is open to ages 11-19. The schedule is currently available on Saturdays at 10am-11am and occasional Sunday afternoons twice a month at Noblesville and Fishers. Volunteers schedule themselves for open shifts using the volunteer portal once they have completed a training session.
