About

The teen areas of your Main and Ellettsville Branch Libraries are great spaces to make, create, and hang out! They facilitate teen leadership, creativity, collaborative work, quiet study, and recreation.

Volunteers

In order to promote a community of mentorship and to build relationships among the teens in Monroe County and the wider population, we provide volunteer opportunities. Those with interest in working with teens to facilitate digital creativity, technological exploration, artistic creation, or recreation are encouraged to fill out the library’s application for volunteering. Teens are also encouraged to volunteer within our spaces to mentor other teens, share their knowledge, and enhance the experience of all users.
