TEENS AT THE WESTWOOD LIBRARY
The Westwood Library makes every effort to have materials and services available to support the educational, recreational, and cultural needs of Westwood's teen population. Please let us know if there is something missing from our collection! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
Programs specifically for teens will be scheduled throughout the year. Stay tuned for upcoming programs.
Teens in 7th grade or older who would like to volunteer at the Library should register for Junior Friends.
Junior Friends are volunteers and are able to volunteer at least a few hours a month at one of the activities available. (We understand that you may not always be able to volunteer, but the idea of being a Junior Friend means volunteering at something!)
Students should register each Fall (so if you have already registered before, you will need to re-register!)
Then sign up for the times you plan to volunteer on this website!
That's pretty much it, but if you have any questions, please contact the Director at (201)664-0583.
