Teens can also apply to be a junior volunteer at the Independence Library this summer to assist the Children’s Librarians with the Summer Learning Challenge for Children. This entails sitting at the library SLC table, interacting with young children and parents and speaking with kids about what they’ve read, data entry, assisting the children’s librarians with craft and science programs and displays, raffle drawings, and so on.
