Do you want to volunteer at the library?  Join our Junior Library Volunteers.  We meet twice a month and work on service projects in the community, in addition to helping with tasks around the library.

Fall 2017 Volunteer Meetings:

  • 1st Thursday of each month, 7-8pm (Sept. 7 & Oct. 5)
  • 3rd Monday of each month, 3-4pm (Sept. 18, Oct. 16 & Nov. 20)

For teens in grades 7-12.  Registration requested for each volunteer session.

Meet new friends and work on fun projects to help our community partners.  This group can help teens fulfill required volunteer service hours and prepare for future college and career opportunities.
