Volunteens

Teens in 6th-12th grade can sign up for a two hour time slot twice a week. Volunteering will begin June 17th. Applications will be available starting June 1st. If you already signed up from the Fall/Winter season, you can continue to volunteer at your regularly scheduled time.


Project Next Generation

Our Library has received a Year 10 Project Next Generation grant! Funding for Project Next Generation is provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Secretary of State/Illinois State Library under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). 


If you would like to be a mentor to our youth, please ask for more information at the Youth Services desk. Our previous grants have earned exemplary status, meaning that our library is serving as a model for other libraries in the state of Illinois.
