Teen Volunteers and Summer Reading Program!

For every child, reading through the summer months is vital to their overall school success. The Grand Rapids Public Library is dedicated to keeping all kids reading during the summer. Teen volunteers are so important in this equation!

Our library staff prizes the help that our teen volunteers give us over the 8 weeks of summer reading. This past summer 20 teens participated in the volunteer program at Seymour Branch. Together they put in 412 hours of volunteer time and signed up 1,022 kids and teens for summer reading – a record number for us at Seymour Branch!

We need teen volunteers yet again, or as we call ‘em, Volunteens!

Does this sound like something you’d like to be involved in? If so, fill out an application right now!
