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 keri.adams@hackensack.bccls.org 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.
