Teen Volunteers

Volunteers are what keep the Bella Vista Public Library running! We'd love to have you join our team of hardworking and fun loving volunteers! As a teen volunteer, you'll have the great opportunity to gain experience working in an office setting, develop new skills, and it looks great on a college application! Teen volunteers must be between 13-17 years old. Plus, you can gain eligibility for the Friends of the Library college scholarship!
