We Need Volunteers for the Summer Reading Program!

We are in need of volunteers for summer reading (as always)! This year, we have an application for teens to fill out if they’re interested in volunteering.

A few things to note:

-it’s a quick turnaround….we need the applications back by May 17th (either emailed to director@nortonvillelibrary.org or dropped off at the library)

-Applicants must be 13 years old by June 2, 2023

-There will be a mandatory orientation for volunteers, dates TBD but there will be options to choose to attend

-Scheduling will be totally flexible…applicants will let us know how much or how little they’d like to help and we’ll work around their schedules)

-Volunteers will receive a t-shirt and a special gift at the end of the summer

-Volunteers can still participate in the summer reading program and earn prizes

-Any hours a volunteer works at the library can go towards community service hours at JCN for the 2023-24 school year

I know it’s a lot of info! Let us know if you have any questions.
