Would you like to be a Teen Volunteer this Summer?




Do you enjoy working with children and their families? 
Do you have basic computer skills?
Are you able to interact independently with the public, with a friendly, helpful attitude?
Are you dependable and prompt?
Do you enjoy crafts, and like to help others?


If you answered yes to these questions, and are between the ages of 13-19, perhaps you should think about volunteering for the Greece Public Library's Summer Reading Program!  The program begins on June 27, and ends on August 8, 2014.  Desk shifts continue until August 15.  Print and fill out an application, submit it at the library information desk.  Plan on attending one mandatory meeting on either Wednesday, June 11 or Thursday, June 12 at 4:00 p.m.  If you have any questions, please contact either Cheryl Greene at cgreene@libraryweb.org or 723-2485, or Laura Sidoti at lsidoti@libraryweb.org or 723-2468. 


Volunteering at the library is a win-win situation.  Here are some of the benefits to you!


1.  Helping others makes you feel good inside, and it enables you to make a positive difference in your own community!
2.  Volunteering looks great on college, scholarship, and Honor Society applications!
3.  Volunteering can help you to learn new skills.
4.  It's a great way to meet people in your community!
5.  Teens that volunteer do better in school, feel good about themselves, and may even be healthier (thanks to the effect of endorphins)!
