Looking for Teen Volunteers
Community Service Hours Available here…
The Douglas Library of Hebron is looking for reliable volunteers for a variety of projects! Currently, we are searching for some Young Adults that would like to help us steer our Young Adult activities and collections. We are looking for students currently going into 7th grade all the way through 12th grade. We will be having monthly meetings where were can plan events, discuss items for purchase for the YA Collection and help create a more user-friendly teen space. The time spent at these Teen Advisory Group meetings can be used as community service hours.
If working outside is more your speed we are looking for Young Adults (13-22) to work in our Community Garden. We have a variety of jobs that can be done in the garden (depending on what time of year); planning the next season’s crops, weeding, composting, seed starting, or winterizing. The items that are grown in the garden will be donated to the American Legion for their weekly luncheons.
Additionally, over the course of the year we are always looking for reliable Young Adults to help us tidy up our library or help us run programs for children, YA and adults.
So, if you are looking to get a head start on your required community service hours, or, are just looking for a great place to volunteer give us a call. Call and ask for Deb at 860-228-9312 or email inf[email protected] to discuss volunteer opportunities for you!
This project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Connecticut State Library.
