The next TLC meeting will be January 22, 2019

The library's Teen Library Club (TLC) meets every month to discuss books and media, make suggestions for library collections and programs, and buy books for the library. We also just hang out and have a good time! To join, just show up to a meeting and introduce yourself.

 

READING BUDDIES

Children who are starting to read on their own are paired with a teen volunteer for reading practice and fun word games once a week. If you are patient, encouraging, and interested in working with younger kids, this is a good volunteer opportunity for you! Registration in-person at the library is required, starting January 2, 2019.

English: Tuesdays, 3:30-4:30pm, January 22 - March 12
