Prince George's County teens can earn service hours through participating in our VolunTEEN program. All teens need to do is submit the appropriate information needed for each VolunTEEN prompt. If all of the necessary information is not provided, teens will not earn the service hour. Teens may earn up to 12 service hours through our VolunTEEN program. This program is for grades 6-12.

Sign up today for the VolunTEEN program!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Beanstack?

Simple! It’s the world’s easiest way to keep track of all the books you read. When you create a Beanstack account for yourself or your family, you’re instantly connected to your local library’s reading programs, so you’ll get credit for every minute and every page. We’ll keep all your stats for you, cheer you on while you work towards your program goals, and let you know when you’ve earned prizes. When your library’s program ends, you keep your account, and your reading history—it’s always free, and you can keep right on logging your leisure reading. When the next library program comes around, no need to re-register—just click on it, and you’re in.

How do I register?

Start by clicking on the link above. You will need to enter your name, library card number, your primary library branch, age, grade, and school. If you are a PGCPS student, your link card can serve as your library card number. After registering, you will see all challenges available to you based on your age or grade level. If you are not automatically enrolled in VolunTEEN, you will need to click the VolunTEEN icon and then click “enroll.”

How do I get someone to sign off on my hours?

When you have completed VolunTEEN, or you’ve completed the necessary number of hours, you will email Email your full name, school, and grade. If you do not attend a PGCPS school, attach the appropriate form for your school. Please do not use a student PGCPS email address as we are unable to email you back.

What if I need more than 12 hours?

If you need more than 12 hours, you can visit to see current volunteer opportunities at the library. You can also attend one of our Teen Action Groups to earn service learning hours.
