Teen Volunteers!

Looking for something to do this summer? Volunteer at the library!

Summer Reading at the library is our busiest time of the year and we need your help. There are opportunities to help with circulation, tech services, programs for children or teens, or help the librarians in the children’s room. The program doesn’t require much of your time, only a couple of hours a week in June and July. If you’re interested, you must attend one of our Volunteen Info Sessions on one of the following days:

Sunday, April 28
1:00 – 2:00 pm

Wednesday, May 1
4:00 – 5:00 pm

Both meetings will be held at the library. This program is open to students ages 13 through high school.  For more information, contact Karen Allen at or ask for info at the Teen desk.
