Calling VolunTeens!

Teens, are you interested in earning volunteer hours?  Our VolunTeen program runs by semesters, and the spring semester is about to start.  If you are 13-18, stop by the Atascocita Branch Library service desk to pick up a VolunTeen application.  The application is due January 14, and you must be able to attend a mandatory training on January 21 at 2:00 PM.

VolunTeens will be expected to assist with programs, prepare simple crafts, set up displays, plus assist with clerical tasks as needed.  You must be able to file alphabetically, work independently, and follow written and verbal instructions.  A minimum of 10 volunteer hours per semester is expected.

Contact the library at 281-812-2162 if you have further questions.
