Teens: Volunteer @ Freeman Library this summer!

       Teens: Are you 14 years or older?  Do you like to read?  Do you like being around younger children and encouraging them?  Do you like working on a computer?  If you said yes to all these questions, then please fill out an application to volunteer in the Children's Department this summer.
