2014 Teen Read Week Art Contest
Students in grades 6-12 are invited to
submit an original piece of art inspired by their
personal reading experiences for the library’s fourth
annual Teen Read Week Art Contest. The work will be
evaluated by the Friends of the Library panel of judges
and winners will receive cash prizes! Entries must be
received by Friday, October 17th and a selection of
entries will be on display in the library during the
month of November. For more information, please see the
Teen Volunteer Program
The library is always in need of volunteers! Students
age 13 and older
work weekly two to three hour shifts. Teens work directly with
patrons and staff by shelving, organizing, assisting with duties at
the circulation desk, and working on special projects. The volunteer program
offers students a fun way to complete community service hours and
the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship their senior year. If
you are interested in volunteering during a fall or spring semester,
please submit a
School Year Application Form. If you are interested in
volunteering at least one month during the summer, please complete a
Summer Application Form.
If you have any questions or would
like to apply for a position, please stop by the library
or contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Danielle Wilson,
email@example.com or (512) 263-2885.
The Friends of the Library recently awarded scholarships
to four graduating high school senior volunteers. The
service scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors
who have volunteered a minimum of 100 hours and who are
planning to continue their education.
