Does Your Teen Have What it Takes?

Will your child be entering 7th-12th grade in the fall? Talk to them about volunteering for us during Summer Reading! One of the reasons our Summer Reading Club is so successful is because of our wonderful teen volunteers. They help sign up children into the Club, hand out halfway point prizes, get supplies ready, and help out at programs. In return they get a head start on their volunteer hours for the school year, a super cool volunteer t-shirt, chances to win prizes with the weekly raffle, and a volunteer party at the end of the Summer Reading Club!

Applications went out in the middle of April. If your teen is interested, please encourage them to come into the library and pick up an application to fill out. There are three training sessions for them to chose from (they must attend one) scheduled for June 6th, June 8th, or June 13th. At training they'll learn an overview about Summer Reading Club and what will be expected of them. If your child is looking for early work experience, is comfortable using a computer, and has a positive and friendly attitude then encourage them to sign up! If they should have questions, please have them phone either Cheryl or Liz at 847-376-2839. We're happy to answer any questions they should have.

Our volunteers are AMAZING! We'd love for your child to be a part of our team.
