Volun-TEENS

Teen With Books

Teens, sadly school is back in session. You probably find yourself busy with your lessons and clubs. Your school may require you to do some volunteer work in your community as well. The Aldine Branch Library at the moment is looking for a few teen volunteers. It can be a wonderful opportunity for those who are hard workers and love to give back to the community. Volunteering at the library also looks great on résumés and applications, so think about it and let us know. Don’t think too long though because we can only accommodate so many. Space is limited.
