Working with the library throughout high school has been a fantastic experience. Not only has it been fun and life- changing, but it has led to my admission into many top colleges. I first began volunteering my Freshman year and from that point on, I have made many friends and taken part in many great programs. It was the Family Read Aloud Nights and Teen Advisory Board that really caught the attention of colleges, though. My experience with the library has been a huge part of both my college essays and job resumes. While I will be attending Oberlin College in the fall on scholarship, Pitzer College, one of the highly acclaimed Claremont Colleges, specifically cited my experience with the library as the reason I was admitted to their school. Library volunteering is a rewarding experience that will also attract the attention from amazing institutions.
