We are accepting applications for our new Teen Advisory Board (TAB) at the Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library. The goal of TAB is to provide real world experience in leadership and program management to positive energetic students (grades 7-12). If you would like to fill out a TAB Volunteer Program application, please contact Pam Tayler, 919-553-5542 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Every summer the Clayton Library accepts a limited number of applications for volunteers, ages 13-18. The library usually starts accepting these application each year in May. Each summer volunteer that is interested can keep an eye out and submit an online application after May. Depending on your strengths and interests we will work with each teen to determine their role in making the Summer Reading Program a summer success. The Summer Reading Program begins the first Saturday after the last day of Johnston County Public Schools and runs through the first Saturday in August. Most of the times we need volunteers will be during the events that will be scheduled every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 a.m. There will be a volunteer orientation 1-2 weeks before the kick-off event and attendance will be mandatory.
