The Friends Book Sale for January has been cancelled.
Don't forget your volunteer letters for hours worked from September -December! They are available at the Information Desk.
Check out this month's issue of The Monthly Laurel, our library's publication designed, created, and edited solely by our teen volunteers.
The Teen Space
Teen Only Hours:
Monday-Friday: 3PM until closing
Saturday and Sunday: ALL DAY
Customers of all ages are welcome to browse the collection during teen only hours, but we respectfully ask adults and younger children to use the seating and computers in other areas of the library in order to keep this a safe and fun space for teens in grades 7-12.

Are you interested in long-term volunteer hours? Adopt-a-shelf is an opportunity for tweens and teens ages 10-17 (18 if you are still in senior year) to help the library maintain its collection. You will be responsible for:
-signing in and out for your shifts at the information desk
-managing a section of shelving, both fiction and non-fiction for 1 hour per week
-maintaining the cleanliness of your section (merchandising, dusting and removing debris)
-signing out and in a duster
To receive a designated section, you MUST:
-pass a test which covers both alphabetical order and Dewey Decimal order
-attend an in-person orientation
-be able to come in once a week to complete the task
The test and orientation will each take approximately 30 minutes a piece and are NOT eligible for volunteer hours. The test and orientation will be held on separate days so please plan accordingly. Please refer to the events calendar to sign up for your test. Orientations will be scheduled after the test results are in but will occur on a Friday evening or a Saturday afternoon. Please indicate which works best for you on the bottom of your test.
New tests will be available every month or so. If you don't see one on the calendar right now, check back soon.
