Teen Party Planning Committee

Meet weekly to help plan the end of summer party by creating your own activity or carnival game for the children who attend. Members should be able to come to the end of summer party to run their game or activity. The party will be held on Sunday, August 26. You will get community service hours for each meeting you attend and for the time spent at the party.

Contact Kate at teen@pawlinglibrary.org to sign up to be on the committee.

 

Library Legions

Ages 12 and up. You make your hours!

Library Legions is a great way to build your resume or complete mandatory community service hours. Library Legions is a community service program in which teens make their own hours (up to two hours per week) and help library staff with a variety of tasks around the library, including helping find books, shelving books, organizing sections of the library, assisting in various projects, and keeping the library looking its best!

Anyone interested in more information should contact Kate at teen@pawlinglibrary.org. Signing up requires an application and a training day with Kate. You can download the application here: Library Legions Volunteer Application

 

Children’s Programs Volunteer Summer Interns

Summer 2018: Schedule varies, usually one day a week, July 9 – August 19

Our library runs summer camps for children 3-10, and we need lots of help to ensure it goes smoothly! Summer Interns in our summer camps work in one of three stations: arts and crafts, outdoor games, or reading activities, and help children stay safe and have fun! Activities are pre-planned and teens help children accomplish them. For summer camp, you must be 12 or older to volunteer. Interested in working one-on-one with kids? We also need volunteers for our Book Buddies program. Book Buddies work one-on-one with a struggling younger reader, helping them feel supported while they read. Volunteers for Book Buddies must be 11 or older and strong readers.

Volunteering with children’s programs is by application only. Apply online here or stop by our front desk for an application.
