Come and volunteer with us at the library! Teen in grades 6th - 12th are welcome to join our Teen Advisory Board (TAB) to gain volunteering hours. TAB meets the last Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Teen Place. At those meetings, each teen earns an hour of volunteering as well as providing us with information on what teens like to read and programs they want to do at the library. They also decorate the teen space and plan volunteering days to earn more volunteering hours. In May, the library starts accepting applications for volunteering during Summer Reading. This is open to 7th graders and up.

Each week a winner is called and one lucky teen wins something fun! There are also programs just for teens. In previous years we have done painting, pottery making, baking, etc.
