Are you in high school? Looking to do some volunteering or complete community services hours with the library? We're happy to have you help us make library life better for all teens!
Here's a list of just a few things you can help us do in the library:
- Write book reviews - Enjoy writing reviews or making videos? We could use some teen-produced book reviews to inform other teens of new books to read! Click HERE for an example.
- Join the Teen Cleanup Crew - Enjoy the space of the Teen Area? Make it your special mission to keep it clean by dusting, cleaning shelves and tables, straightening bookshelves, and refilling book displays.
- Takeover the Teen Area - Interested in making a book display or two? You could make a book display with your favorite books. Make a display sign, decorate the display space, and even grab 10 to 20 books you think everyone should read! Look at Bryce's example above.
- Write postcards to ARL newborns - The library sends a postcard to every child born in Arlington to come to the library to get a free book. We'd love to have you address postcards!
Have we pulled you in yet? If not, let us know what you'd like to do for the library! We're open to many possibilities, and we'd love to have teen input and ownership over new projects! :)
Want more information? Please email Teen Services Librarian, Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope your school year is off to a brilliant start, and we look forward to hearing from you!
