  • Download eBooks
  • Check your account
  • Renew loans
  • Pay Fines

It’s Not Too Late… 2017 Teen Book Fest Volunteer Registration is OPEN

March 24th, 2017 by IPL Webmaster in Adults, Teens · Comments Off on It’s Not Too Late… 2017 Teen Book Fest Volunteer Registration is OPEN ·

Are you a teen in grades 6 through 12 who thinks authors are rock stars? Or perhaps, you are a college student or adult who loves to make magic happen? If so, come help us make the Twelfth Annual Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival an experience to remember! We need over 200 volunteers to ensure the event runs smoothly.

This year’s Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival (TBF) will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017, at Nazareth College. Every year, this free one-day community event connects thousands of teens with award-winning authors from across the country. Each volunteer will be assigned to work a minimum of a two-hour shift. Volunteers are needed to serve as author assistants, festival greeters, festival guides, and sales assistants in the TBF merchandise area. Those volunteers available all day may apply to serve as author assistants, but these positions are very limited.

Apply now! We’d love to have you join the TBF team!

All volunteers must attend a mandatory training session at Nazareth College on Tuesday evening, May 16th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. We will email you details about this training along with your volunteer assignment. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from this mandatory training and the festival itself. Volunteer Registration is open February 15 – April 1, 2017.

Please send all questions to volunteers@teenbookfest.org and use this Signup Form to register to volunteer.

Thank you and we hope you will be able to join us at Teen Book Fest 2017!
