Teen Library Corps is a program for teens in Pierce County to learn work skills while volunteering on important library projects. The program is open to teens ages 14-18 at nine Pierce County Library locations.
During summer break, from June 23 to Sept. 2, the program will run, giving teens the chance to improve their work resumes and college applications during their time off from school.
“The Teen Library Corps is a huge opportunity for teenagers in building valuable leadership experience,” said Pierce County Library Executive Director Georgia Lomax. “It will also benefit our communities, because the teenagers will give us their ideas and opinions for programs and services they think will help best serve teenagers and families.”
Teen Library Corps volunteer opportunities are available at the following libraries:
- Gig Harbor Pierce County Library

- Milton/Edgewood Pierce County Library
- Parkland/Spanaway Pierce County Library
