Junior Friends of the LibraryJunior Friends meet once a month to brainstorm, plan, and work on library related and community service projects. We are library ambassadors and let our classmates, teachers, and family know about upcoming library events. We plan the library's summer camps and some of us help lead. Throughout the year, Junior Friends must earn 40 volunteer hours at the library or by participating in any of our community service projects.
Library volunteer hours can be earned whenever is convenient for you. A Junior Friend can be anyone in grades 3-12 who loves reading, the library, and giving back to the community. To join Junior Friends, just fill out an application at the library. All meetings are at the library from 1:00-4:00 on the Saturdays listed below.
