Summer Reading Program
The San Bruno Library welcomes teen volunteers for assistance with our Summer Reading Program. Summer Reading Program volunteers sign up younger children for the program, hand out prizes, assist at programs, and help with other library tasks as needed. The Summer Reading Program generally runs from the middle of June to the end of July. Teen volunteers must be 14 or older or entering 9th grade in the following September. Volunteers must attend one training session and volunteer at least two hours per week for the duration of the Summer Reading Program. Training sessions are usually scheduled in May (held in June) and potential volunteers must pre-register. There are a limited number of spaces for these volunteer positions. 

If you are interested in volunteering in the summer, please contact the Library towards the end of April/beginning of May and you will be contacted once the dates for the training sessions are available.
