Summer Reading

Seeking Summer VolunTeens!

Looking for a volunteer opportunity this summer? Why not become a VolunTeen?

VolunTeens play an important role in our library by helping us to achieve our goal of providing the best service to library patrons possible.

They help with everything from running children’s programs (prepare materials and set up for program, assist small groups during the program, and clean up afterwards) to shelving returned books.  Each VolunTeen chooses the area that they think sounds most interesting and we do our best to match them with that opportunity. There’s something for everyone no matter if you’re looking for some quiet alone time, or you want to be in the middle of a rambunctious crowd.

Sound good? Fill out this Volunteen Summer Application  form and return it and a letter of recommendation from an adult who knows you to the Teen Zone by Tuesday May 10th, 2016.

We hope to hear from you soon!
