Volunteer at Douglas County Libraries

DCL Teen Volunteer programs count toward Douglas County School District's community service toward graduation. Community service hours for graduation must be documented, and hours are noted on the student's transcript. Students may begin working toward this graduation requirement any time after their 8th grade year is completed. In 2013, more than 600 students volunteered at Douglas County Libraries, contributing more than 9,000 hours.
