VolunTEEN for Summer Discovery

Are you an Anchorage teen in 9th-12th grade in need of volunteer hours? Come to the Loussac Library every Tuesday from 1:30pm-3:30pm! We need volunteers to help make our Summer Discovery events the best they can be. Limited to 5 volunteers per day, so make sure to be on time.

Teen Book Reviews

Is your teen looking for volunteer opportunities? Do they have opinions on a book? Teens age 12-18 can email a brief (at least 100 words) summary and review of a book they've read this year, with their name and grade to: TeenUnderground@anchorageak.gov

Participating teens earn 1 volunteer hour with every review submitted. Reviews have a chance to be featured on the Teen Underground Instagram, the Anchorage Public Library website, or on a display in the Teen Underground.
