Teen Programs



We are looking for a few good teens! If you like using IPads, Smartphones and other forms of technology, we’d love to train you to become one of our “tech buddies”. You would commit to coming to the library for one hour a month(6:30-7:30PM the last Tuesday of every month) and assisting community member s who want to learn how to use their devices! We will give credit hours for community service and it would look great on a college resume! Anyone in grades 9-12 who is interested can sign up starting September 1. We will have a brief training meeting on Tuesday, September 16 @ 7PM.
