Don't Forget Your Homework

We have more than just books to help you ace those pesky school assignments! Our Resources for Students page has lots of research options you can use any time (including the middle of the night when your paper is due the next day.) All you need is your library card.

The Main Library in Frisco and the South Branch in Breckenridge have study rooms you can reserve for your study group.

Volunteering

Do you want to give back to your community or gain job experience? Teens volunteer their time and earn community service hours at the library. Time can be used for IB Credit, National Honor Society, working off library fines, or community service.

Junior Librarian Commitee at South Branch

Youth Advisory Commitee (Y.A.C.) at North Branch

A great way to do this is by joining our teen groups. Members help plan library events and give input on what they’d like offered for teens.

Other Opportunities

Teens can volunteer their time by doing various tasks at any of our three branches. Volunteer duties may include things like helping with events, children's programs, creating displays, preparing crafts, cleaning, recycling and shelving. Email Shayne to volunteer at the South Branch in Breckenridge, Christina to volunteer at the North Branch in Silverthorne or General at the Main Library in Frisco.
