Deadline approaching for teen volunteers

The application deadline for teen volunteers needed to help with the children’s summer reading program and other Fauquier County public library projects this summer is fast approaching. Applications will be accepted through May 31. Print the application, complete and return to the library.

Volunteers must attend a training session prior to the start of the summer reading program, which begins June 14 and continues through Aug. 9. Staff will contact applicants to schedule the volunteer training. Applicants should be prepared to sign up for specific volunteer time slots when they attend the training session.

Some of the tasks teen volunteers will perform include assisting children and parents with summer reading program registration, keeping the registration table stocked and neat and tidy, assisting children and parents with entering the number of books read on the online book log, assisting with crafts and programs, and assisting library staff with clerical tasks.

Teens may call or e-mail for more information: Warrenton Library, Jennifer Schultz, (540) 349-1128; Bealeton Library, Natalie Swart, (540) 439-9728; John Marshall Library, Deborah Cosby, (540) 364-4910.
