The Chattahoochee Valley Libraries offer an invaluable volunteer experience for teens 13-18. While opportunities exist throughout the year, the Summer Volunteer Program takes place from May - July. Teens can earn required volunteer service hours while helping the LIbrary during its peak season during the Summer Reading Program.  


Before volunteering with Chattahoochee Valley Libraries, all volunteers are required to attend orientation and training. During orientation, the Volunteer Coordinator will give an overview of program guidelines and expectations. Volunteers are then provided “on-the-job” training at their assigned branch or department prior to the start of service.
