Want to help out in other ways? You can make your own schedule, working 1 or 2 hours at a time in the Youth department. Sometimes we have special projects, but when we don’t, we can always use help shelving. If interested, email me (Becky) at boneil@westervillelibrary.org.

What’s the POA, you ask? It’s the Protection of Animals web site, and it was started by animal<3, a local Westerville teen and Library Teen Volunteer.

animal<3 says,

Hi! Here is a great website my friend and I made discussing animal rights. You can join our group by going to the Contact Us page. We will gladly accept!

Thanks for the tip, animal<3! Visit the site today!

Now that your hard work is finally over, it’s time to party!

Join us on Friday, August 22nd from 3 to 5 pm at the library to reminisce about the wonderful times you shared while working the Summer Reading table. There’ll be things to eat, games to play, and Summer Reading bugs to squish!

Evolve this summer & VOLUNTEER at the library!

Want to earn some brownie points? Want an excuse to get out of the house? Want something to put on your college applications?

Why not volunteer at the library this summer?

Simply attend one of our Teen Volunteer Orientations in June or July and you can sign up for as many or as few hours as you want! You’ll learn about our annual Summer Reading Program and how you can help. (If you come to orientation and decide it’s “not your thing”, that’s ok too. But in order to volunteer, you have to come to orientation.)

Remember, you must be between 12 & 18 years old to volunteer.

ProgressiveU

Since we were just talking about presidential candidates… 

Here’s a site that calls itself “the antidote to MySpace.”

ProgressiveU allows teens to think, speak up, and reach out.

We provide a community space where you’re more than a face (in a book). You’ll feel refreshed, invigorated, and empowered after blogging, discussing, and debating with other students like you, who care about more than who did what at the last party.

Seems like a good forum to get your voice heard, make a difference, and be inspired by other teens who are doing the same.
