Volunteer - Frederick County Public Library

Frederick County Public Libraries are proud to support our FCPS students in their efforts to earn service learning hours. At the Urbana Regional Library we are especially focused on reaching student volunteers in the Linganore, Oakdale, and Urbana school “feeder” patterns, and we are always delighted to provide volunteer opportunities for students aiming to achieve 75 hours for annual recognition or working toward a particular class requirement.


There are several ways to get involved as a library volunteer. The Urbana Regional Library holds monthly Teen Advisory Boards and routinely plans community events, “teaches tech” to seniors and tots, and engages in fun, team building activities. Students earn service learning hours for attending any of these events.
