The Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library
has a unique connection to volunteers: they were the very
founders of the library. We have come a long way since our first
library, a small, white trailer trailer run by our first
dedicated volunteers. The building of our current library was,
and continues to be, a community effort.
We even have a special VolunTeen program for people ages 13 to
18, and time worked can be applied to school or church community
service requirements. In addition to regular volunteer duties, VolunTeens are welcome to help with math tutoring and reading to
children. They may also join the Teen Advisory Board and have a
say in their library materials and event programming.
If you would like to volunteer, please pick up an application at
our Reference Desk. We would love to have you as part of
our library team! For more information on volunteer
opportunities, please call Teri Van De Water, Volunteer
Coordinator, at 827-6950. See you at the library!
