Get Involved

Feeling like you need something to do, want to help your local library, or just looking to pad your college applications? Look no further. The Ottawa Library has some options for you.


Teens are welcome to apply to volunteer at the Ottawa Library. Teen Council members will be given priority. Help run a game at an outdoor event, shelve books, assist with snacks, and many other opportunities await. 

Teen Council

Meet other like-minded teens (ages 12-18), have snacks, and voice your opinion on books, programs, and policies for teens at the Ottawa Library. It will open up opportunities for you to volunteer at the library and in the community while having fun. 

Meetings are held at The Ottawa Library in The Cave (our teen area) one Friday a month at 8:30 AM. Check our calendar for the next meeting. Take the elevator down to join us for breakfast and a quick meeting.
