Seeking Teen Volunteers!

Will you be entering 9th grade or above in the fall? Do you like kids and reading? The Youth Services Department is currently seeking teen volunteers to help for our Summer Reading Program, "A Universe of Stories."  Interested volunteers are asked to commit to two or more hours per week doing a variety of tasks. This is a great opportunity to earn service hours for your school or community organization while you have free time during the summer!  Applications are available at the  library or online (download PDF). 

Volunteer training dates are May 29, June 3, & June 6. Please read the application for more information, choose one training session to attend, and return your completed application to the Youth Services Desk before that date.
