Junior Friend Activities ongoing:
Readers: If you are a student at WWRSD and 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.)
Reading Buddy: the Library is seeking teen volunteers who would like to be a reading buddy and paired with a beginning or struggling reader. If you are interested in being a reading buddy, please email email@example.com.
