Specific Details

Teen volunteers needs for Southwest's spooky Library Labyrinth. Teen volunteers will take attendance, pass out candy, and/or be an actor in our creepy maze. Please have reliable transportation!

If you plan on being an actor inside the maze, you should come in costume. The costume should be appropriate for little kids (2-8 years old)--so no gory or super scary outfits. When you are an actor in the maze you cannot touch, yell, or jump-scare maze participants. If this happens, you will be asked to leave immediately. But you are welcome to act spooky!

You can sign up for as many time slots as you like, but we will need a total of 15-25 volunteers. During your chosen time slot(s), you can be either at the maze's entrance/exit or inside the maze. We need 5 volunteers for each time slot listed below. The days and times are as follows:
Friday, October 27, 3-5pm
Saturday, October 28, 9am-12pm
Saturday, October 28, 12-3pm
Saturday, October 28, 3-5pm
Sunday, October 29, 3-5pm

You can email Caroline Peterson or Patty Melendez (pmelendez@dconc.gov), if you have any questions or if you are interested in volunteering!
