The Lewiston Public Library is seeking youth between the ages of 13 and 19 to become teen library ambassadors.

The ambassadors will attend meetings once per month and assist with self-chosen and directed projects as informal volunteers under the supervision of the teen librarian. Teen library ambassadors will advise the teen librarian on youth trends and interests in the community, helping to develop programs and events that are needs-based and better reflect local teen needs.

Teen library ambassadors have opportunities both in-person and virtually to work on:

• Writing reviews of books, movies, comics, manga and video games;

• Taking pictures and making graphics for library social media;

• Making TikTok or Reelz style videos for library social media;

• Moderating discussions and running events on the LPL Teen Discord server;

• Suggesting materials to purchase for the teen library collections; and

• Planning virtual and in-person events, programs, competitions, tournaments.

The ambassadors will be expected to keep in communication with the teen librarian via email, social media, or Discord in order to be considered active members. Any ambassadors who wish to be featured identifiably in library social media promotion must first fill out a photo release form.

Meetings will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of the month. Join virtually on the LPL Teen Discord for a drop-in info session from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17.

The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 15 in the second floor Teen Lounge at 200 Lisbon St.

Teens can fill out the Google form or pick up an application at the second floor reference desk to join.

For more information, email teen librarian Harper Chance at [email protected] or call the Adult & Teen Services department at 207-513-3135.
