The teen department at the library utilizes teen volunteers in grades eight through twelve during our summer reading program. Volunteer duties range from helping out during programs and events to taking apart and counting LEGO kits. There are lots of tasks and we try to match the teen to a job they enjoy doing. We are having two informational orientation sessions scheduled in the Teen Activity Room of the Bell Road Library on Sunday, March 12 at 2:00 or Monday, March 13 at 6:00. Orientation should last about an hour and teens only have to attend one session. They do not need to sign up for the orientation in advance. If they attended a session last year they don't need to attend.
