Summer Volunteer Opportunities for Youth

Chicago Public Library has virtual volunteer opportunities for tweens and teens! Youth in grades 7 through 12 may apply online or stop into their local library to pick up a print volunteer application. Note: These are unpaid volunteer positions.

If you are 18 or older and would like to volunteer, please contact your local library directly to find out more about screening requirements and unique opportunities that might be available for adults.

Thanks for your interest! We are no longer accepting online applicants for volunteers this summer. If you’re interested in participating in our Make Summer Yours 2021 programming for all ages, please stop by a CPL location or visit
