Library Activities and Volunteering for Teens


Call 604-527-4677 or email for more information about any of these programs.



Get volunteer hours for reading!

We have Advance Reading Copies (ARCs) of several books that have not been published yet. Check one out, read it, write a review, and let us know if we should buy it! Your reviews will help us decide whether to add these titles to our collection.

You will receive one hour of volunteer credit for the review, and 2-4 hours for reading the book, depending on how long it is.

To participate, sign a book out at the information desk in the Children’s and Teen Department at the Main Branch.

The next TAG meeting will be June 26

The library's Teen Advisory Group (TAG) meets every month to discuss books and media, make suggestions for library collections and programs, and buy books for the library. We also just hang out and have a good time! To join, just show up to a meeting and introduce yourself.
