The Johnson Public Library is seeking volunteers for our Teen Summer Reading Program. All volunteers must be entering Grades 9-12 in Fall 2017. Volunteers must submit a 2017 Johnson Public Library Summer Volunteer Application via email to email@example.com or in person to the reference desk by Thursday, June 1. Print copies are available in the YA section.
Volunteers will help out at afternoon summer reading events on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from July 6 to August 11. (You do not need to be available for every event). At each event, you will help set up, sign in students, run a specific activity, assist fellow students, take photos/video, and help clean up.
All volunteers MUST attend a mandatory training session Saturday, June 3 from 10 am – 12 noon.

The Teen Department at Johnson Public Library is happy to serve students in Grades 7-12 (though people of all ages are welcome to check out our collection!). We have a weekly Teen Tuesday program during the school year and an exciting series of Summer Reading events each year! Check our event calendar for all the details. All of our programs are completely FREE!
Please direct any questions, comments or book recommendation requests to Keri, our teen librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask for her at the Reference Desk. Keri loves to help teens find books they will enjoy reading.
Every Tuesday after school we have a free program for teens in Grades 7-12. The activities rotate on a weekly basis but often include video games, movies, crafts or active events. Advanced sign up is never required and weekly attendance isn't necessary. You can come any time that you are available.
