Teen Summer Volunteers

The Youth Services staff really appreciates the help that we received from our 24 teen volunteers who contributed a total of 430 hours of service to our 2009 Summer Reading Program. The teens were an integral part of the success of the program with their willingness to assist the Youth Services staff in countless tasks and projects over the course of the 6-week program.

  • Our teens sorted books, making sure they were in the correct order so that they could be returned to the shelves and checked out by our eager young readers.

  • The teen volunteers helped on Monday nights with our multicultural programs in Central Park. They carried equipment, assisted the performers, and helped make these evening performances enjoyable for our audiences.

  • Volunteers stamped our certificates, assembled our packets of coupons and helped us prepare our Summer Reading Club finishers' awards.

  • Teens processed the books that had been removed from our Library collection.

  • Teen volunteers organized the supplies for our programs for children and teens.

  • They helped our young patrons and worked with our staff during the teen and children's programs.

Thanks, volunteers! You brought smiles and enthusiasm to the Library this summer!
