Hi! My name is Laynee and this is my fourth year volunteering for the marmalade TeenSquad. I love to be outside and mountain bike or hike with my friends and family and I love to read. I am very excited about being a part of TeenSquad this year!
Hello, my name is Emma. I’m 16 and a junior at Juan Diego High School, and this is my first year volunteering with Teen Squad. I love music, art, writing, and of course reading. Some of my favorite genres are classics, thrillers, and memoirs. I look forward to helping out with Teen Squad this summer!
This is Marta’s second summer as a Teen Squad volunteer. He is going into 10th grade in the fall.
This is Silvana’s first summer as a Teen Squad volunteer. She is going into 8th grade in the Fall.

Jennifer: "Hi! I'm Jennifer and just like you, I'm not normal at all. I like to read comics, graphic novels and collect random facts about animals in my brain. Did you know that penguins and dolphins actually enjoy killing? Well now you know. I would to share more with you about how horrible those suckers are. However, this is an all ages introduction. Have a good day!"
Christian: "My opinion on libraries is that they are more than just a center where people come to read. Through my work in the Teen Squad I have realized that the library hosts various activities where families can unite and work in collaboration with each other to craft or design something, bringing the community together. The staff at the library is always able to help the customers at hand with patience and understanding. It's an educational and fun place that lets people organize their thoughts and become a better person that they envision for the future."

If you've been following our posts this summer, you're probably starting to wonder "Gosh, just how many volunteers does The City Library have?" That's a good question. This year we have just over 80 incredible teen volunteers, and that's not counting the adult volunteers that help out from time to time at our branches. Neat right? Read on to meet the Teen Squad volunteers working at the Main Library this summer.
Many thanks to the rest of our Main Library Teen Squad crew!
