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!

TUE | Apr 12 | 5 PM | Library Lawn
National Library Week is April 10-16 and we’re rallying library supporters for a walk to City Hall to say “thank you” for our wonderful library!
As if it couldn’t get any better, Michael and Morris the Monkey from our ridiculously popular Toddler Storytime will play music for our stroll! So, wear your library t-shirt, make a sign telling the City why you love your library, and we’ll provide the flags (red with white dots, of course!) Once we arrive at City Hall, there will be a brief, 5-minute presentation of the library’s annual report and a proclamation from our Mayor.
Help rally support with our Facebook event!
Join us and bring friends!
5:00 PM — Assemble on the Library Lawn
5:15 PM — Parade walk begins with Michael & Morris
5:35 PM — Arrive at City Hall (Cheers! ♥)
5:45 PM — Proclamation kick-off with Mayor Mike Amyx

“Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century, Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar.
His innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form.”
Join us for a look into Hendrix’s short, yet influential career. Offered in partnership with KU’s Langston Hughes Center.
