Want to Volunteer?
Interested in becoming a Teen Volunteer for the Clearwater Public Library System? You've come to the right place! Earn hours for school, scholarships, or volunteer just for fun. Our teen volunteer program is open to young people in grades six through 12.
Step 1: Contact the Volunteer Coordinator
- Call the Clearwater Library location in which you are interested in volunteering at (727) 562-4970. Request to speak to that location’s teen volunteer coordinator:
Beach Library – Roxana Grinov
Countryside Library – Julie Hudson
East Community Library – Sarah Jameson
Main Library – Valerie Mathre
North Greenwood Library – Lexie Wells
- The coordinator will explain the paperwork required to volunteer with the Clearwater Public Library System and can email the forms to you on request.
Step 2: Fill out the Volunteer Paperwork
Step 3: Return the Volunteer Paperwork
- You can drop the documents off in person at the Clearwater Library location where you are applying, email them to the location's teen volunteer coordinator, or mail them to:
Clearwater Public Library System
Attn: Youth Department/Teen Volunteers
100 N Osceola Ave
Clearwater, FL 33755
Step 4: Processing
Once we receive all your paperwork, we run a final background check. This process will take one to two weeks. We'll contact you by telephone as soon as you are accepted or if there are any problems with your paperwork.
If you are completing Service Learning Hours for educational purposes it is your responsibility to make sure that your guidance counselor or school representative has approved your volunteer assignment. It is also your responsibility to make sure that all paperwork involved is properly tracked, signed, and submitted. If you need assistance, please see either your school representative or the Volunteer Coordinator. (Bright Futures has very strict guidelines). Make sure you check with your school before beginning hours for this scholarship.)
