What are Junior Friends
The Junior Friends of the Library are teens (7th grade and older) interested in community service projects at the Library as well as organizing fundraisers and programs of interest to other teens. Junior Friends is a great group to join if you need service hours or are looking for leadership opportunities. ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER AT THE LIBRARY WILL NEED TO REGISTER AS A JUNIOR FRIEND FIRST.
To become a Junior Friend, register on this page below--this will give us your email so we can send you updates about activities and meetings.
Meetings: During the school year, the Junior Friends meet on the first Monday evening of each month at 7pm unless there is a Holiday and then we meet the next Monday. During the Summer, the Junior Friends meet weekly. Our next meeting is:
Monday, July 11 at 7pm.
Starting on Monday, July 11, the Junior Friends will meet weekly on Monday evenings at 7pm through Monday, August 14.
Junior Friends can earn community service hours by volunteering to help at designated programs OR by attending programs. Here is a list of both.

Programs to Participate In:
Readers: Need some community service hours in a pinch? READ. That's right, you can read a Young Adult book and review it and this can give you two service hours. You must check the book out from the library, and you must get a review form from the circulation desk. Return the completed form to the Library to get your credit. (An email will be sent to Peter Richter confirming your review was received.)
