Teen Volunteer Projects – Give 1 Hour, Get 1 Hour

Want to give back to your community? Need service hours for a club or organization? Volunteer with the Woodridge Public Library by completing an independent service project.

Choose up to one project a week to earn up to one service hour per week between now and November 30. One completed project = one service hour. Do only one project a week. Submit projects as you complete them. 

Each week that you complete a project and submit it to the library you will earn a service hour. At the end of the fall, we will write you a service hour confirmation letter for the hours you earned through November 30. You can earn one hour a week for a maximum of 14 hours. If you need a preliminary note to inform your organization about your interest in our service projects, you may print, fill out, and submit this page directly to your organization.
