Open to teens ages 13-18. The library is looking for teens willing to extend a helping hand to young readers this summer. Anyone interested in becoming a VolunTeen must come to a mandatory orientation
You are eligible to volunteer as a reading mentor by listening to young readers practicing their skills. As a VolunTeen you listen to young readers (Chapter Chums) practice reading out loud, so they keep up their reading skills and reduce their overdue fines. VolunTeens will also help keep the library neat, keep the YP FIC organized, shelve DVDs, make book lists, and more! We will also have Tech Teen photographers that take pictures for MMPL.
With this volunteer time, you can either “work” off your fines (at a rate of $3 per 30 minutes) or gain volunteer service credit for colleges. We will document your service.
Children of reading age to 12 can “read off” their fines (at a rate of $3 per 15 minutes) to a VolunTeen as well. We don’t want fines keeping kids or teens from reading this summer!
Orientations are on:
Friday, June 12, at 1 p.m.
Friday, June 26, at 1 p.m.
