Teens & Tweens

library-volunteens-logo-2016A fun, energetic & diverse group that supports the library to reach out to patrons, young & old.

Volunteens are invaluable in helping make our library a special place and they have a great time doing it!

  • Last summer, much fun (fueled with chips & popcorn) was had while making our first Teddy Bear Sleepover a huge success. See pics HERE
    to see what antics the Volunteens helped the teddy bears & stuffies get up to after their owners went home for the night.
  • Leading To Reading – help kids improve literacy by reading with them
  • Lending a hand with art activities and craft times at special events
  • Recommending Good Reads for other teens.
  • Sometimes we just get together to chat & come up with ideas and plans.
