Help the library better serve you while earning community service hours. Help plan teen library events, recommend books and music for the library collection, meet new friends, and more! Contact Ari (Main Library) or Rob (Weekes Branch) to learn more.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

Teen Volunteer Saturdays at the Downtown Library, 12:30-4:30 on various Saturdays each month. Email Cheryl Penick at cheryl.penick@hayward-ca.gov for dates. Receive up to four hours of volunteer credit. Come in for the whole time or any portion you can. Examples of possible jobs include craft preparation and cleaning books & toys.  Bring a completed, parent-signed Student Volunteer application to the library if you have not already submitted one since September 2019. Questions?  Email Cheryl

Saturday volunteering is also available at Weekes Library by sign-up only. Students must sign up at the Reference Desk in advance and in person for a one-hour slot.  

Please note: Library service hours can not be used for community service required by a judge or court.
