Teen Friends of the Library Informational Meeting (Registration suggested)
Wednesday, September 18
The Teen Friends are students in grades 7-12 who help with children’s programs, craft workshops, bake sales, fundraising, and more. They also help choose materials for the library. Highlights include a monthly book discussion club and an annual sleepover at the library!
Due to the high demand to be a member of the Teen Friends, we are holding an informational meeting about the group for families who may be interested. If there is space in the group, we will draw new members by lottery.
Teen Friends meetings will begin in October. The first mandatory monthly meeting will be October 9 and the optional book discussion will be October 23.
