To volunteer at the Library this summer! We're looking for teen volunteers to help with the Summer Reading Program. The 2009 Summer Reading Program begins Monday, June 8th, and ends on Sunday, August, 2nd.

Responsibilities include helping with children's games, listening to children talk about the books they've read, handing out prizes, and some clerical duties.

If that isn't enough to get you motivated, don't forget that volunteering is a great opportunity to fulfill community service credit for college applications, National Honor Society, and/or confirmation requirements.

Besides, all the cool kids are doing it.

Come to the Youth Services Desk on the lower level of the Library and fill out an application. We'll be holding mandatory training sessions for volunteers on Tuesday, May 26th, 7-8pm and Monday, June 1st, 6-7pm.

To register for ONE of these sessions: stop by, call 847-929-5102, or register online. (If you register online during the month of May, don't forget to "Register To Win" a $25 VISA gift card, good anywhere VISA is accepted. And that's pretty much anywhere.)
