Volunteering with TAG is a great way to build leadership skills and contribute to the community.

Great Books for Great Kids

Looking for volunteer hours?
Help us with our new book display project called Great Books for Great Kids!

Teens in grades 7-12 can volunteer at the Crossings Branch, choosing books for a display in the children's area.  You'll search for and pick out great books, create a special bookmark for each one, and then share it with our young readers in a special display.  You'll be responsible for tracking your own hours.  At the end of the school year, the teenbrarian will give you a reference letter stating how much you volunteered.

Interested? Sign up here and the teenbrarian will be in touch.
