Virtual Volunteens

WCDPL is looking for Youth ages 11 and up to join our Virtual Volunteen Corps! 

To maintain safe social distance, our Volunteen program has moved online. 

Consider some topics you would like to discuss at scheduled Google Meets and maybe we can invite local experts to join and share with us. Please email us at woodkids@wcdpl.org with any ideas. We certainly will be sharing library resources with you as our Volunteens continue to be a major asset as ambassadors for WCDPL!

Please talk it over with your parents and guardians. Consider filling out our online application at any point, and we will be in touch!

Check out movies and TV shows for three days, check out music albums for seven days, and check out audiobooks and digital comics for 21 days. (There is a limit of fifteen items per person, per month, which resets on the 1st of each month.)
